I'm thinking of installing Linux on a Windows '95 machine but I do not
want to have to do anything to keep the existing data on the drive.
Basiacly I'm not that intrested in backing up the machine if I don't
have to, but I realise that it may not be possible. Is there anything
that I can safely do to install Linux without risking the loss of the
existing HD? And can Linux write and read the existing HD (it has
"long name support"). Mostly what I'd like to do this for is to have
my own machine and this machine both running Linux accross an
Eithernet (or similar suported network) and to start playing around a
bit with the networking options availible. Does this make sence to
anyone? I sure hope so.
Intrested in hand made textiles and more?
