    Dual boot mandrake with win2kpro

    Is the new version of mandriva linux (2005, not the new 2006 beta)
    safe to make it dual boot with win2kpro? I ask this because i had problems after installing mandrake 10 (not the final version) in dual boot . (boot loader screwed up)

    Atm I have mandrake 10.1 together with win2kpro on an older duron 800mhz pc, but i'd like to use my newer machine for linux now.
    (its an athlon2200+, abit nf7-s mobo, 2 maxtor 80gb 8mb cache HD's, lite-on dvdrw and cdrw, 524mb apacer ddr333. sapphire radeon 9800 xt, hercules smarttv card )

    which one would safest to use in dual boot ? the older mandrake 10.1, or mandriva 2005 limited edition (which i am downloading right now)

    I have Mandy 2005 dual-booted with Windows XP, using Windows bootloader instead of LILO or GRUB. But it works with LILO and GRUB too. You should have no issues with dual-booting using Windows 2000 Pro.
