    I would suggest you to post output of sudo fdisk -l command before installing Windows OS.
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    * Its small L in fdisk -l command.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Dual booting

    Thanks for the prompt reply. I will install Win98 on first partition (of course after formatting) and then Mepis on the second partition. Is that OK ?

    Meanwhile, after activating Tux racer game in mepis, I do not find the cursor on the screen to select various options. How to resolve this ??

    Thanks once again ... akg123

    Yeah,Thats OK. Windows likes to be 1st. As far as Tux racer I don't play games so maybe somebody else can answer you on that one. I am giving you a link thats an interesting read on Mepis and its features with screenshots.
