I have just installed Linux mandrake 6.0 (nearly). I bought a copy of
Magic5 and partitioned the hard drive as 10GB (win98) 4GB (Linux) 128MB
(Linux swap), I have managed to install Linux ok (nearly) on the 4GB
partition. The problems I have now are when booting up BootMagic2 kicks in
but Linux is not available just win98 is this because of the Lilo thing, I
skipped that part in installation as in a magazine article I was reading on
how to set up a dual boot system it said that if Linux asks to install a
boot manager not to as BootMagic does all that.
However I did manage to boot Linux from a floppy disk created in
installation,, everything loaded up fine except the screen was set at the
wrong resolution or something as everything was about 10 times to big (the
bottom left hand corner of the desktop takes up all the screen if you know
what I mean)so maybe I have chosen the wrong monitor during installation, is
there anyway I can change this and what monitor should I choose (I have a
Proview 17" which isn't listed, so I chose Non-Interlaced SVGA 800x600) Oh
and I have a Voodoo3 200 AGP which isn't listed either so I just chose
If I can sort out the Monitor thing I suppose I could just uninstall
BootMagic and boot Linux of the floppy disk.
Anyway thanks again for all the help.
