Mandrake Linux 9.2


OSNN Senior Addict

I just wanted to install mandrake linux 9.2, downloaded the 3 iso's, burned them and started the installation, somewhere in the middle it just got stuck and I try to install again and it keeps stuck...

When I installed I selected and unused HD and the installation formated it to an unknown format not ntfs nor fat.

Now, That I cannot and dont want to install linux anymore, XP, doesn't see that HD, how can make it to Windows to see it and format it to FAT again?

Start -> Control Panel, goto classic view, then click "Administrative Tools" and open the "Computer Management"
goto Storage then Disk Management, XP should be able to see the disk there then right click on it and format, assign a drive letter and so on

geffy: Ty it worked...
BTW: someone can help me why that installation doesnt work ?
Or do you know a better Linux ?
depends on what happens ... "doesn't work" could be anything. Also everyone has a favorite distro ... your best bet is to try a few and see what you like best. Some "easier" ones are of course mandrake but also redhat and SuSe.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
