I have a 14+gb hard drive and have it partitioned in half. My win98 install resides on the primary and using partition mgr I made the extended a linux partition.
I've downloaded all the files for Linux to my C drive in a folder.
My question is do I need to do anything else to the extended partition (ie. format, change the partition, etc) and can I install from the C: drive to the Linux partition or do the files need to be copied to the extended partition ?

I think your going to have a problem, If i remember correctly up untill atleast 6.1, linux has to have its boot partition within the first 6 gb of the the hard drive.

as far as intalling with the files already on the HD, Ive never done that, If you can I would try and obtain a cd.  If you have access to a burner, ISO's are available from places like distro.org
