    Installing on multi-partitioned machine.

    Hey everyone. I'm Kal, and I'm still a newb to the world of Linux. I've got some questions to ask to insure that I don't screw up my Knoppix install and wipe out things I want.

    I've currently got my system multi-booting with Windows XP Home Edition and Icepack Linux. Unfortunately, the Icepack ISO was messed up and the GUI doesn't boot. Because of this, and the fact the Knoppix is really cool, I've decided to switch.

    So I want to install Knoppix on the Icepack partition and be rid of Icepack. Will I need to remove Icepack first, or will Knoppix overwrite? And how can I make certain I don't install over Windows?

    Thanks,

    Kal

    In fact as you start with ctrl alt f1 and then knx-hdinstall and go into installing knoppix
    you will see normally your partitions, if your are not sure you can always cancel it.
