How to reinstall Linux Tags: Linux How To Computers Last response: July 15, 2004 3:37 AM in Linux/Free BSD Share cool_xo July 13, 2004 12:46:37 PM My computer currently has 3 OS installed - Win98, WinXp and RedHat Linux. I want to remove RedHat and put Mandrakes on. My question is what are the steps I need to take in order to remove RedHat and install Mandrake (without affect Winw98/Xp)? I am using LILO. I am a beginner in Linux. Any help would be really appreciated.

What about the swap space? Do I just point that to the exising one created by Redhat? | Report abuse otakeck July 14, 2004 2:18:59 PM actually, you'll reinstall the whole thing, so you'll reinstall LiLo completely. | Report abuse silverpig July 14, 2004 3:04:59 PM Mandrake will reinstall a bootloader for you, so don't worry about that. Yeah, and just select the same swap partition you did for redhat. s signature has been formatted to fit your scr | Report abuse cool_xo July 15, 2004 3:37:40 AM Thanks guys!!
