Mandriva 10.1 on an AMD Mobile Athlon 64 Laptop
I about to install Mandriva 10.1 on my laptop (AMD athlon 64 Gateway Laptop). After trying the x86_64 (on DVD) which won't launch the installation, I decided to go for the 32 bit version (i586). I have Windows XP preinstalled.
My question is: Do I have to create a partition for Linux prior to installing or does Mandriva manage the partitions during install and leave the windows alone ?
Does anyone have experience with 10.1 or 10.2 (32 or 64 bit) on AMD64 laptop?
