    When I pop the SuSE linux CD in...


    Hey folks.

    It arrived today.

    Now, I popped it in, and it gave me a list of options. So, should I choose "Installation" or "Manual Installation"? I presumed that Installation wouldn't let me dual boot, so I tried "Manual Installation".... but am not sure. In the end I didn't install it, but would like to know which to use for a dual boot with Win 98SE.

    Also, I thought it was supposed to be a very graphical installation? I've seen Mandrake being installed; much more graphical than this! :P (But I tried Manual Install, will plain Installation be diff?)

    You want a normal install, it will let you partition just fine

    normal will give you a graphical installation prompt, the manual lets you change much more, but not in terms of partioning, mostly system settings, and i think a few config files, regaurdless, as cloud stated, install will let you manage your partitions.
