setting up dualboot from linux?
im running mandrake 8.1, and i want to put win back on dualboot for a few programs, namely halflife, nero, and aim with file transfer capability. anyway, i was told that the easiest way to do this is to delete my partitions then do a win98 setup and let linux resize the partitions for a dualboot. however, i'm having problems with fdisk even *noticing* my partitions. it freezes when i try to add, delete, or even look at partition info. and entering win98 setup directly just tells me "error writing to disk". so i went ahead and used diskdrake to resize my /home partition a little bit, then created and formatted a fat32 partition with some of its former space. after booting off the win98 cd, fdisk still freezes, and win98 gives me an "out of memory" error. do i need to remove a memory allocation setting somewhere? if so, how would i do that?
