    I am using windows 98 /win xp as my OSs ,Now I want to install Red Hat Linux 9.0 in one of my last partition (i am having 3 partitions in total).

    I have already created a partition of ~5GB

    I also want to keep win 98 & my XP.

    I dont have the bootable disk of linux ,but i am having 3 installation disks.

    Can u give me some commands which i have to give during installation?

    Can you guide me?


    Thanx a lot!

    Please do not install RH9 its old and once you compare it with windows XP you will dislike Linux from the start. I would recommend install suse 10 or some new distro to get all the features (lipstick). If u are in Delhi u can take distro from me.
