dass see if u have an empty unformated space on ur disk.
if yes then go ahead with ur installation process.
but u might have a problem while installing the LILO. in the MBR.
so make a boot disket and skip the part of installing the LILO on the Mbr. rest all is upto u.
happy Linuxing.

Get another HD? I am planning on that and once that goes down, I am installing Windoze, Red Hat, and Free BSD. :)
