Slackware 12 installation
Hey fellow Linux users. Ive used linux off and on for the past few month and have settled on Slax. I downloaded the complete Slackware 12 installation DVD and sealed it a DVD/RW. Booted from the disc then got to the partition phase. I did the whole "cfdisk" thing and every time it pulls up as "Read Only" and only recognizing the 3.8gb boot disc.
So I searched vigorously over the net with key words such as "Slackware 12 partition", "Slackware installation "READ ONLY"", and "Dual Boot Slackware and Vista". Now I assume you see the problem VISTA:mad:. The most unuserfriendly software on plant Earth. Found a few answer here prompting me to use partitioning software. Partition Magic LiveCD shunk my HD but came up with some sort of error so I had to undo the partition. I tried EasyBCD, didnt work. Then I read something about LILO and GRUB. But I have no idea what program the need to run, and since Windows doesnt recognize either Im guess they are for a linux OS. So here I am asking you all for help and for any points in the right direction. Im not quite at a dead end but a fork in the road.
