Linux and PTS Bootmanager 2.5

On a CD (that was coming with a German PC magazine) I have a Slackware 3.1 of Linux. I want to install this as a parallel OS, since I have the great PTS BootManager 2.5
However, the Linux setup wants something like a Linux partition from me - but I thought the BootManager is a workaround... Any ideas how this goes?

Hi,

   Bootmanager is not a work around. You will need to have a spare partition for Linux, lets say your drive D:, or E:. Linux
will be installed on that partition. Later on, you could use
Bootmanager to start up Linux or Win95. Or you could also use
Linux bootmanager called "LILO". For more information, please
check the documentation directory and read the HOWTO-Install ...
and so on. Linux and Windows cannot be on the same partition.
They have their own file systems.

Good luck,
Minh Lai

Hi n0thing!

Do you know of any HD partitioning program that does _not_ format the HD, i.e. the data currently on the HD is on one partition, and another partition is created?

sorry, I've waited some weeks, but no response to my comment, so I had to reject your answer

Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

Christian,
  Partition Magic is registered software, you will have to
shell out a few $$$ for it, but well worth the money spent.
It will creat a partition out of unused hd space, without
harming the data already on the hd.
The exact url you want to check out is ....
