NTFS is almost always the best choice, especially for partitions over 32 GB. FAT32 is far slower on large volumes and more prone to fragmentation.
If the computer has a windows operating system and the hard disk has more than one partition, My Computer or Windows Explorer will show each partition as a local drive. For instance, if you have two partitions, My Computer or Windows Explorer will show partition #1 as Local drive c:\, and partition #2 as local drive d:\, and will bump the CD or DVD drive to the next available letter, in this case e:\, and so on.
If you wish to keep Mandriva, and you do not have an empty space available on the hard drive, you will need to shrink Mandriva's partition, using a partition editor like GParted. Windows will only install to the first partition of the drive, though the partition can be moved. So you will need to shrink Mandriva's partition from the end, towards the beginning of the partition, and then move it towards the end of the drive. Move the swap partition as well. You can then create an NTFS partition, or use the Windows installer to do so. After Windows has been installed, boot from a Mandriva LiveCD, and enter the following commands: grub root (hdx,x) setup (hdx) quit For "root (hdx,x)", the first x is for the hard drive number. If you have only one hard drive, this will be 0. For the second x, use whatever partition Mandriva is installed on. If it is the third partition, use "2". If it is the second, use 1. If it is the fourth, use 3, and so on. For "setup (hdx)", use the number of the hard drive you want the MBR (Master Boot Record) written to. If you have only one hard drive, this will be 0.
Linux does not identify drives or partitions with letters. To Windows, "C:" is the partition that the running version of Windows is currently installed on, regardless of how many partitions are on the disk. Linux identifies partitions based on the order they are placed on the disk. For instance, the second partition on the first hard drive would be /dev/sda2 or /dev/hda2. In order to access a Windows partition,you will need to identify what partition it is actually on. A quick way to do this is to run cfdisk /dev/sda or cfdisk with whatever hard drive it is on if you have more than one. A Windows partition will have the type of either NTFS or FAT32. To mount it, create a directory (such as /mnt/windows), and use the command mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/windows substituting of course the correct partition.
just format that drive and then run fdisk and delete the partition and create Linux partition after that and i hope u have sufficient space in ur hard driveAnswerjust format that drive and then run fdisk and delete the partition and create Linux partition after that and i hope u have sufficient space in ur hard drive
You can not disable a partition in Windows 98 but you can remove it(everything on the partition will be lost if not saved beforehand on a cdr-rw or another hard drive). Boot up with a windows 98 floppy with th Operating System on it and the the Fdisk.exe file on it. At the "A" prompt, type "fdisk" and press enter. When the fdisk screen pops up, first be sure which partition you want to delete (D,E etc)so you don't delete the partition with your operating system on it (the "C" drive). Once you have determined which partition is to be deleted, follow the onscreen instructions to remove the correct one. When finished, close out the program and reboot the system and the partition should be gone.
Some people do not like having a separate /home partition for Linux, though it is better for recovery purposes. For the purposes of the question, it is assumed that you do not want a separate partition for your /home directory. The best performance is provided by placing a Linux swap partition first on the drive. This should be at least double the amount of RAM you have installed, but no larger than 1 GB. You will have to move the XP partition to the end of the drive after you have installed it. The partition after the swap partition should be a Linux partition. I personally prefer ReiserFS, but ext3 is slightly more popular, mostly due to the larger number of error recovery tools. The last partition should be the Windows XP partition.
All hard drives must have at least one partition to be usable by an operating system, even if the partition uses the entire drive. If you are installing an operating dissimilar from the one you are using currently (ie. Windows XP and FreeBSD), you should partition the disk from that system's installer, not in Windows.
