try other mouse protocols. if the mouse works in xp, we must be doing something wrong.

must be a hardware problem if it worked fine before and then it started not to work.

Do you get a mouse pointer and it just doesn't work right, or no pointer at all?  Cuz I had a ps/2 mouse problem before and it was just a matter of finding the right protocol to use.

I'm using an A4 Tech PS/2 (3D mini Mouse w/ scroll) that has an extra adapter that lets' you convert your ps/2 into a com connector, the last time I encounter the PS/2 problem is when I tried RH 7.2, it did not detect my PS/2 mouse, and I cannot use my mouse wheel under web browser (which is I don't like),  my current distribution is MDK 8.2, and it detects my mouse as "Microsoft Intellimouse", which is cool!

you can now safely install linux on that partition. In large HD, you can have problems in older linux distributions because of old kernel and bootloader that cannot boot high values of HD geometry settings, install the newest distributions.

if you are referring to the 1024 cylinder limit, the bootloader is the culprit, _NOT_ the kernel.

Shouldn't be a problem with the new kernels like ^ said.  I think the easiest way to do this is by using dos fdisk to split the partition first into 2 fat32.  Install win98 on the first partition and linux on the second.  When you install linux, fdisk the 2nd partition again.  Some distro will even give you a warning about the 1024 cylinder limit as redhat did when I installed it, but some don't even care like when I installed slackware.  Worked fine both times for me using lilo.

well, if you don't know how to start, just let teh installer do the partitioning for you. however, if you prefer to do the job manually, make sure you create a huge ext2/Reiserfs/ext3 partition for "/" (root directory) more likely to be 90% larger than swap partition, and a 500MB swap would be great.

I haven't tried doing it with partition magic but I heard it's even easier.



edit:



just checked pm7 and there's an option to do linux partitions.

testNburn: blackbox, fluxbox, waimea, etc. it might also be that you just need some tweaking on your boxen.



pauster007: partition magic could help
