    boot from cd

    I am running Mandrake at the moment on it's own hardrive seperate from Windows XP pro.

    XP is on the primary HD. Some kind of way after I installed it I searched and found a way to remove the bootloader so that when I just start my computer you never see that there is Linux on the other HD. To boot to Linux I made a boot CD which has two file on it. Boot.catalog and Boot.img.

    The image I think has the bootloader on it. Anyway,

    My question is this. If I install the new Madriva One. I don't want to install a loader so I would skip that. Would my bootdisk still work? or do I have to figure it out all over again. I don't want to just try and get screwed.

    Welcome to the forums!

    No, it probably won't work unless the new Mandriva One uses the same kernel that you used in your previous installation. You'll probably need to make a new bootdisk for the new installation.
