That isn't enough info.

What you need to do is tell how much room you have on both, what type did you partition it to be.

You really do not seem to know too much of what you need to do to get linux working properly.  It is totally different than windows.

I currently have my harddrive as such:

/dev/hda1 (fat) <-windows
/dev/hda5 (ext2) <-Linux MAIN
/dev/hda6 (swap) <-Linux swap, kinda like M$ virtual memory yet more efficent.

Although most people that use windows hate to read documents, that is what Linux is all about.  I used to dispise reading how to's but it is good to get started now.

Don't get discourage...it is too easy to just say [curse word deleted by Communty Support] it, but you really shouldn't.

I've used linux for over 1/2 of a year and more and more I am contimplating recovering the space for linux, since windows sucks...it really does.

Here is a good place to get started.:

It is very recent, so enjoy.

darinw Thanks for advice. I`ve already visited numerous linux sites and tryed to understand the installation instructions.
I have a 8.4gig hdd and it`s partitioned 2/3 for primary and 1/3 for secondary.when i go to install linux ,the installation cd starts a partition  program. I`am concerned that my primary win98se will be overwriten or wiped out.
I guess i don`t understand the supposidely step by step instructions.
I`am trying to install the corel linux
version which is supposed to coexist with win98.
