I am using mandrake7 with extended partitions, and it works fine.
What problems are you having?
I have hda1 as '/', and then extended partitions under this.
win98 is hda2

Hi there :)
I have a 17 GB hard drive and I currently use 98 and Linux ( Mandrake 7.0 ).
I only se 98 for my @USB devices and DVD player, software decoding. I want
to put NT on the box as well. I have a boot manager. But I'm having
I set it up as follows. Win 98 4 Gb, NT OS 2098 Mb Fat16, Linux Boot 20 MB,
NTFS 4GB, Linux Swap 250 Mb and the rest for Linux Native.
But this involves 5 primary partitions. NOT POSSIBLE unless I use a
secondary partition. But Mandrake Has a problem any solutions. I will even
consider different flavours of Linux.
