I finally got Partition Magic 7 to play nice, I partitioned my 6Gb disk drive with a little over 2.8 Gb for Linux and a swap.
Only problems I've had installing is that the 2nd CD that I have with all the extras on it is F.U.B.A.R
The install progress bar stopped at 14 minutes to go and asked for the 2nd CD, and I put it in and thought all was well until those error messages started popping up, "Error installing package",
Anyhow to make a long story short, it took over 4 hours for the process to finish leaving me with a whole notebook page of errors.
And finally telling me that my CD rom drive or CDROM was damaged.
So, I asked the guy I got the CDs from to burn another 2nd CD of Mandrake and I should have it this week.
Man was I ill after seeing all those error messages, but I know I'll get it installed someday soon.
And I'll be posting more here every now & then.
Thanks for the help so far, you guys are great!
