I installed Windows, how do I boot Mandrake?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to assume you are using a version of windows greater than win98?

 

Windows doesn't need to be in the first partition, it justs needs to think it is.. I don't know the specifics, but you can tell lilo, when booting the windows partitions to make it C:

 

After booting, windows will exist on C: (as far as it is concerned)

 

Optionally, you could always get another hard drive and put windows on that? (safer?)

no I still have Win 98.

It's on hda1, then I have a little /boot partition (hda5 I think I'm not on the box now) then a huge FAT32 partition (hda6) for datas.

That is this partition that Windows doesn't see and I don't know how to tell it there is something there.
