Question About 1 single Hard drive 2 partition
I just want to check a few things before installing Fedora on the D: I've used DOS's fdisk years ago to partition harddrives. But I have never even thought of using Windows and Linux for partitioning. If I have a C: and D: partitioned by Windows Vista and want to install Fedora on the D:.
Do I run the risk of overwriting the full drive or will the Fedora install respect the logical drive and only overwrite the D:?
Next Question does the Fedora 7 install disk, install Grub to the MBR,
Or do I have to download Grub and install before installing Fedora 7 and if so does grub install itself to teh MBR if not how do you do that?
Does anyone know where I can get a GOOD program to catalog my hardware?
(I've looked for a few and found nothing that will output accurate information my hardware alas did not come with a manual thank you acer)
Last but not least does anyone know of a good walk through for a dual boot system for Fedora and Vista?
I have looked and looked all I have located is several for Vista and Unbuntu none for Vista and Fedora is there much diffrence between the two Distros in a Dual boot system and if so what are the diffrences?
I'm not new to computers just don't trust windows at all and have never used Linux in my life.
