    Newbie needs HELP


    Is there an instruction manual for the Mandrake install? Some thing that would lead me by the hand through the steps one-by-one? I've tried once
    to install Mandrake 10. My SATA controller apparently isn't compatible. I
    will go back to IDE. There was a lot of info I was to type in, but I had no
    idea of what was being asked. I'm an old cout, and some times we learn
    a little slower, but I am able to learn. At the present I'm using XP. Will
    Win 98 SE or Win 2k duel boot with Mandrake? My goal is to have an OS
    I can use to go "on line" to get help with Linux until I can learn enough
    to dump Windows all-together.

    I have installed WinXP and Mandrake 10.1 on the same SATA Drive with no problems.

    What questions are throwing you off?

    Mostly the stuff about my internet. My host, IP address. I'm on cable. I've
    not had to know this before. I just hook up the modem and router, fill in
    my E-Mail and I'm there. The hand-holding manual is one way I find I can
    learn the most from. Remember I'm a dumb-ol' fa&t. This is how I
    learned Win 98SE. I was able to build enough knowledge to do just about
    any thing I needed to do. The move to XP was easy. Now I would like to
    move to fulltime Linux.

    Which would you install first? Does XP require "C" drive?
    I don't think the SATA drive was the fault. I do not have onboard SATA.
    I have a controller card for SATA (not a raid)

    For the internet it souds like you use dhcp. Select that option. Of if you are in windows, do a ipconfig to find your Ip info.

    With windows installed you will have to partition your hard drive.
