Hey there, I just wanted a pointer on how to go about the install with yes, Windows already installed. frown My system right now is setup with Redhat 9.0 first (9GB), then 1GB swap, Win2k (10GB), and XP (10GB) - no hd space after that.
I just wanted to know how to install over Redhat, and keep the swap and Windows installs. I have been using Linux Mandrake and Redhat installations for a couple of years on and off, but would like to try Gentoo for something new. I have been reading on the net that it is more difficult to setup, and would like some expert knowledge before I dive in and start wrecking shit. Any help would be a blessing. Thanks :x laugh

If you want to replace Red Hat the easiest way by far would be to boot off the Gentoo LiveCD and install as normal per the install guide except when you get to the part about creating the partitions, skip it and move straight on to the part about formatting them (including the swap partition).
