You need two partitions for linux. One for the root filesystem and one for the swap. After booting linux from the cd, or the floppy, you can select the unused partitions for the linux installation.

It`s easy:
  1.- Partitions 1 & 3 actually for W98
  2.- Partitions 2 & 4 for RedHat. When you install RedHat, you need specify 2 questions:
     A.- A Swap Linux partition (about 20% size of Linux Partition).
     B.- A Linux partition.

For example, if you have 2 Gb free for linux, you could create one partition (partition 2) of 1,7 Gb, and another one (partition 4) with 0,3 Gb (Swap partition). Remember that you must create these partitions with fdisk of Linux, during instalation (not with fdisk on W98).

Bye... :)

I have never tried it yet, but the new version of Mandrake Linux will allow to install it to a windows partition.  Good for people who are new to the operating system, and want to give it a "test drive."
