Hope anybody can help me with this pls.
I have WIN98 System 8GB, 96MB RAM. I am interested in installing LINUX alongwith my WIN98.
I did partition on my C DRIVE for 2.5 GB and 5.5 GB using PARTITION MAGIC 4.0. Now my 5.5 GB partition has WIN98, FAT 32. My other partition 2.5 GB doesn't have anything -- not even MSDOS.. and when I partioned it, It asked me the filesystem I want to put in.. suggesting EXT2 for Linux.. so i opted for EXT2.
Now my problem is -- How to start with installing LINUX on my inactive partition.. It doesnt read any CD.. I did 1 bootable disk .. Only file on my floopy is COMMAND.COM..
when I reboot my system using the floppy .. it takes me to DOS PROMPT.. But then what to do next.. I am trying to install LINUX 6.1 FROM CD .. I WANT TO INSTALL USUING ITS GUI..
I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE ANY HELP
