Need Help re Bootloader
I am currently trying to install Mandriva Ltd Edition 2005 on a PC and during the installation procedure it goes through steps etc. I've come up to this part where I need to choose/install the bootloader.
The options I get are:
1. First sector of drive (MBR)
2. First sector of the root partition
3. On Floppy
Now I am not using or running any other OS on this PC and Mandriva 2005 will be the only one that will be running/installed on it.

MBR is your best bet .** Registered Linux User # 393717 and proud of it ** Check out www.zenwalk.org
** Zenwalk 2.8 - Xfce 4.4 beta 2- 22.214.171.124 kernel = Slack on steroids! **

Put the boot loader on the mbr.
All Linuxs need a boot loader, so even though you only intend to use a single OS on your PC, you still need to install a bootloader.
Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
