    If you install Fedora on another partition remember not to install the bootloader for it. Once you have installed Fedora, boot into Mandrake and mount your Fedora partition (which I will take as /dev/hda4) - if it hasn't been mounted already- :
    Code:
    su
    [rootpass]
    mkdir /mnt/fedora
    mount /dev/hda4 /mnt/fedora
    Next edit your /etc/lilo.conf and add a stanza like the following to it:
    #Stanza for fedora linux
    image = /boot/vmlinux
    label = fedora
    root = /dev/hda4
    you will find the name of your image file in /mnt/fedora/boot/ and it will be something like vmlinux. Now save the file, and then run
    Code:
    su - 
    [rootpass]
    /sbin/lilo
    which will update lilo, now you should be able to boot both distros.

    There are no malicious virii for linux, a few have been created as proof of concept, but linux is very free of virii.
