    I Thought it was risky Because.....

    I believed it was risky because if i did not set th bio's settings properly or install the mandrake 8.0 wrong, then my windows operating system could be deleted or overwritten

    Yes, that is true you can overwrite your windows install if you install Linux on the same partition as your windows install. I've seen a few "I installed Linux and accidently deleted my windows install" posts. :P
