    Help for a Linux Virgin

    Using Partition magic I have xp and SuSe8.1 on seperate partitions. Finally got boot magic to run >. However, boot magic satys preparing to load linux and nothing happens the thing just hangs.
    Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong.... I think it must be me
    Is there any other way I can get into SuSe?. I don't want to lose all my xp stuff as yet until I've mastered Linux.
    Please make it simple....I'm still strugging with the SuSe manual

    Thanks

    I'm not familiar with boot magic, but is this a utility that you use to boot between the two partitions? If so then why not use LiLo or Grub, as those are the standard linux bootloaders (Yes they load Windows as well).

    Thanks,
    There was a boot manager that came up when I first installed Suse, so will do repair and give it a whirl.

    you would be a whole lot better off getting a secound drive a small one and unplug the first one and making the secound drive master intall linux on the no.2 drive when all done go and replace the first drive as master then at boot time when you want to use linux go into the bios and choose the secound drive xp and linux are not going to get along becuse of diffrent files system and they have to share the same master boot record and with everything being equal something is bound to go wrong and linux does not use singel drive letters like xp nore does it install in one partion rather in several divided ones

    Re:Help for a Linux Virgin

    You are wrong. Linux can be installed into a single root partition, usually /. Plus Linux, and Windows can get along dual booting just fine. Like I said. Install either LiLo or Grub, and you'll be on your way with little to no trouble.
