drake 8.0 install

hi,

currently i am downloading mandrake linux 8.0 from ftp.grolier.fr/pub/unix/linux/distributions/Mandrake/iso/Mandrake80-inst.iso and plan to install it. But, i currently have redhat 7.0 on a 3gb partition and windows on a 16gb one. Would there be any problems with just telling mandrake to install to redhats partition and using redhats existing swap partition?

    No you should not have any problems.

    I've never tried that but the only possible problem that I see is that RedHat will probably be completely over-written if you use all the same partitions.
    If you want to overwrite RedHat then you are set, otherwise, I'd look into only working with the redhat partition for /home, /usr, /var.



  • yes!! its running...the only problem i had was that when it came time to configure X the test graphic would appear but then nothing else. But strangely enough i rebooted when it happened, tried booting linux and it was all fine despite the fact that the installer didnt finish...weird
