Debian Installation questions
I have a couple of questions on what to do for the install?
I am planning to multiboot a win98se (current os), and debian latest onto a ibm thinkpad 600e pII 6gb, 128mb ram cd/dvd dive, nonworking usb, no ethernet, yes wireless
I am planning to multiboot the OS's.
Before the install, it says to backup data. How do I go about doing it? I am running win98se, I have a couple of files that matter, mostly office and installed programs. Oh and all the win98se updates, So how to make sure i dont have to redo all that work.
" Anytime you partition your disk, you should count on losing everything on the disk, no matter what program you use to do it." from http://www.us.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch03s02.html.en
I would like to download the desktop install type total 2gb is that wise? Is the work console a better option? I also like to developer install? Which one to choose? They look so cool to me?
How to see my current partition on win98se?
Can someone explain data movement and repartitioning as it applies to protecting your current data from the install process? Edit: Is the answer that debian handles this, cause thats kinda sweet.
How do I do a bios update on thinkpad 600e model 2645-55u? I have No clue, how to do this?
