Well, I previously asked about how to start with linux here, and suggestions were towards starting with knoppix. (I also tried Shabdix, a Farsi version of linux.)
I tried to install latest version of Fedora on my machine as a third OS (the first one is WinXP installed on Disk0 Part1 which is about 15GB, the second is Win98SE on Disk0 Part2 which is about 7GB) in the third partition of my disk, and yes it is outside the 8GB limit but I have a good BIOS!
When it came to installation of a boot loader (GIGO in my case) I didn't notice the option of not writing to MBR, if it was there, and the MBR was damaged. Thanks god I have Drive Image and PartitionMagic and BootMagic and Norton Ghost at my hand! Actually I decided to fully format the hard disk and repartition it from begining!!
Any ways the question is here: I want to install Linux on a machine currently loading WindowsXP and Windows98SE. Dual booting is currently carried out by BootMagic. I want MBR not to be affected. Any suggestions?
Something in side: Seems that having a swap partition is recommended for better performance. How much space should I put for that?
