Walk me through dual booting Windows XP Pro and Mandriva LE2005 please..
Just some extra info I have 2 physical hard drives, I want Linux on the second one. Would that be hdb?
Just boot with the dvd in the drive.
When you get to the partitioning section, install to hdb, that is your second hard drive.
And yes, Mandriva will create the necessary partitions.
Make sure that LiLo gets installed to the MBR. And it should provide you with a dual boot.
Welcome to the wonderful world of linux.Pick up a starving dog, prosper him, and he won't bite you.
This is the main difference between men and dogs.

I think you'll need to have lilo installed on the first hard drive, hda. To make thing s easier, install it to hdb, then change your boot order in the BIOS to allow Hard Disk 2 boot first. Lilo can complain sometimes if it can't access its config file (ie if it's on another, unmounted disk)
Well I set the boot loader on hda and I was greeted with L 01 01 01 01 01 etc. Thank god I made a windows recovery disk. Help? I guess I will just delete the drive and start again Oh and for some reason its just not recognizing my USB mouse, I tried every setting and it just wouldn't work. I found an old PS/2 mouse and it worked but it was soooooooo slow like it lagged.
Ok now I can't boot without that floppy in.. how do I fix whatever I broke
