hi, I'm new and I have a problem. I want to paritition my hardrive, but, due to windows-related rapage (or threats of rapage), I'm thinking about getting rid of windows completely and just installing slackware 10.
Now, the question. When I boot using the first slackware 10 cd, I can use cfdisk to "delete" the windows partition. Does
that mean that I won't be able to later create space for windows and install windows 2000? Can I install 2000 without having 95 or later on my system already? What exactly does "delete" do to a partition? I don't have much on my computer, becuase it's fairly new, so I don't care if I lose everything. Just, I would like to have windows 2000 alongside slackware, at least until I'm comfortable with linux.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
