I would like to go for Mandrake 9.0 linux for windows without disturbing
the existing settings.
As per thier insturctions, Mandrake linux fow windows can be installed in a
window partition in a separate folder.
Under this option an ext3 (assuming you use ext3 for Linux) image file
will be created under the FAT-32 partition, and this image will be used instead
of a disk partition. But, this results in performance loss, and also you are
leaving your entire Linux installation (ie. the filesystem image) at the mercy
of windows. If your FAT-32 filesystem gets corrupted, then the image file (and
thereby your linux installation) is also screwed.
Is it possible to install MDK without losing any data in my E or F
partition? if it is installed
in windows, will it use FAT-32 or ext.3 File system?
These have already been answered. So, there's nothing more to say.
