I have tried to install this version of Linux on this operating system several times,  but when I try to install Linux Mandrake 8.1 Win 98SE is completely deleted.  I have tried to partition the drive.  For example the partition is:  / mnt swap and 1/4 inch white blank space at the end.  I put the numbers at 940/1094 for this partion.  I can't remember how big the swap file is.  How do I partition the drive and how do I keep Win 98SE from being deleted?  The guide for this version of Linux mentions how to partition but not a step by step process for a newbie.  

Thank you.

well when installing linux  it will show various partitions  u can choose any ,leaving partition which are shown for windows  (they will shown like win_c etc)
if u use graphical way of  installing the linux
when u use a parttion as mountpoint then it will be shown in red color and when u chose swap space it will be shown
in green color and if any space is left it is shown in white color ur win98 is deleted because u use a partion
for windows either as mount point or swap(thats what i think)
