With my original 98s os Mandrake 8.2 will be compatible to the Fat 32.
After I use partition magic to create 3 drives of approx. 10G in capacity. I should not have any problems with the recognition of the Fat32 file system for Linux will support this file system. So I have a dual boot system A drive B drive and C drive will be used for W2000 NT
When I install this separate into drive C which is spaced and empty, will the NTSI file system be able to operate, with no conflicts?
Or will it have a conflict with Fat32?
I will not boot from W2000 NT only from A drive and B drive which will contain Linux. But I would like the capability of changing over to the w2000 os after boot up?
Thank you

There are several links and some good tips in these two threads:

I am not quite sure what you are wanting because the drive letters A and B are reserved letters for floppy disks and C is reserved for the primary bootable partiton (WinDOS), and any windows on a C: partiton will be fighting for it to be the bootable one.

What are the system requirements for Mandrake 8.2? It says i586 or greater but what does that mean?
