    Laoding Mandrake to a slave drive...


    I would like to install Mandrake to my slave drive. I would like it to boot from a floppy.

    I cannot seem to format and load. Any advice on how I should go about this?

    I'm not sure what you are asking? are you saying that you can't boot from the cd? if so make sure that you have the cd drive set to the first boot device in the BIOS.
    Or does it boot but not install? if so did you check the md5sum of the cd's you downloaded?
    Or are you haveing other difficulties;

    hope this helps;

    Ok, drive C(with a partition D) is the master. E is CD-R. My slave is F.

    I'd like to create somewhat of a dual boot with XP Pro on drive C and a full install of Mandrake on drive F. I'd like to access Mandrake with a floppy boot disk only.

    I can boot from the CD-ROM(having a little trouble with the login though).

    If you have not figured it out yet, I know next to nothing about Linux/Mandrake. I want to learn this just for the experience
