Currently I dual boot win98se/slackware12 ea on 160gb hdds
w/loadlin.
1. Is the dual boot setup different if I were to put win98se on 20gb partition and slackware12 on hde2 (140gb) and hdg1 (160gb)?

2. If I were to simply remove win98se and use both hdd for slackware12, how does it boot up as a stand alone?

3. If I choose XFCE as my default desktop can I still boot into GUI? Or is this option only available with kde and genome?

4. Do /swap and /var have to be primary partitions?
