Hi I have a P4 machine with 70 GB hard drive with no partitions. I run Windows XP Home edition on it. I wish to install LINUX as another OS. Could someone tell me if it is ok to use Partition Magic and partition the hard disk and how should I go about installing LINUX & then also want to install Oracle 9i on it.
Your help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I would use PM to resize the existing XP drive(s) to free up some space and then let the Mandrake installer do the rest.
