Linux on Omnibook 6000

Working as I did for Hewlett-Packard Company, I have installed Linux on a variety of computers over the years. I do most of my work these days on a HP Omnibook 6000 laptop. It is a very sweet machine, and a great improvment over both my desktop machine and my old laptop.

I use Mandrake Linux version 8.0. The key to the making Windows 2000 and Linux co-exist is resizing the Windows partition and then installing Linux. Another important step is to retain the Windows operation system chooser and let it boot you into LILO, the Linux Loader, and then let LILO boot Linux.
