Windows ME & Linux Partitions

By Gayetri K ·
Hie ,

Could someone help me out with this please?

I recently purchased a new PC with Windows ME installed . I have a 30 GB Hard Disk , all allocated to a single
C-drive.

The main reason I purchased the PC was to install Personal Oracle 8i , but I'm now lost . Appearently , Oracle 8i does not recognize Windows ME as a standard OS and attempted installations terminate unsuccessfully.

I am now trying to create a partition so as to be able to install Linux and Personal Oracle 8i for Linux on a seperate drive without touching Windows ME , but do not know how to go about this .

Is it possible to retain both OS on the PC instead of un-installing Windows ME and installing Windows 95/98/NT & Personal Oracle running on these platforms ?

How do I create a partition for Linux without disturbing Windows ME ??

Thanx for your time ,

Gayetri K

Get a copy of Powerquest's Partition Magic.
(You can download it free at their site)
Run it from Windows.
Create new Linux Partitions by sliding the bars.
Use Boot Magic to allow OS choice at start up.
This is the easiest way I know of installing different operating systems. I use it for Win98,DOS and Linux.

Buy Corel Linux -or if you have a high speed connection download it from www.corel.com- It comes with an installer that creates the partition automatically. Make sure that you don't select -Take over disk- when installing and it should be very easy...Good luck.
