    Talking Mandrake Linux version 8...


    Well, I sorta want to give the above Linux version a shot...
    Maybe one of you guys can help me out with a little problem of mine.

    Can you easily install ths Linux version onto a second Harddrive when Win2k is on the first(primary) HDD, Without killing Win2k?

    Thanx in advance!

    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Hy-

    I just went ahead and installed Linux on the 2nd HDD. win2k is still running! )
    Anyways, somebody sent me an eMail with two utilities which enable Linux and Win2k to read each other Filesystems...
    Thanx! (I didn't install nor donwload them yet, but I will!)

    Now I get a thick sweater and start getting used to life with the Pinguins, huh?

    best regards

    AFAIK you need LILO. You'll need to boot Linux from LILO in the A drive.
    I have been advised to put the mbr (master boot record) on the floppy to boot from the BIOS (if you BIOS is configured to boot from A first (which it should be)) and the kernel on the HDD.

    I hope that helps.
