Hi experts,
I have a 1.2 Gb HD drive which is managed by Ontrack's Disk Manager 7.06. I want to make two partitions with Partition Magic 3.0: 700 Mb for DOS and 500 Mb for Linux.

What I'd like to know is if I can install Linux without a problem or if there will be some conflicts with DM. If I can, how sould I do ?

Thanks a lot for answering.

Linux will not work with Disk Manager. Assuming you need it because your BIOS will not support disks larger than 500MB you can make your Linux partition 700Mb(must be first partition) and a 500MB second partition for DOS. You can get rid of Disk Manager completely.
