    installation and fdisk help


    Hey, i want to install slackware, i have a drive that i partitioned a while ago. Its a dual boot, the one has Windows and the other partition has an old slackware version. I dont use that OS anymore cause it doesnt boot right. So i thoguht i might aswell install a new version.

    But i need help with installing slackware. Cause i have to tell it somehow that i can use the old partition that already has slackware, and not the partition that has Windows on it.
    But how do i do this? Do i have to use fdisk for this, and if so can you please exlpain how to do this in steps. Cause im pretty new to Linux.

    Thanks for any help.

    no need to re-create partitions. select existing Linux partitions in Partition Section during installation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
