i just put cd in pc. pressed install. chose my new partition. sat back and that was it. easier than xp imo. i dunno if theres anyway to manage your partitions with it. i just used partition magic
edit: you have a empty partition already. just choose to install on that.

oh so you mean its unallocated? if so you need a prog like partition magic to do it (not sure if vista will partition it, pretty sure it WONT)

well i guess i will try it, i sound like a n00b >.< i just don't feel like dealing with it i guess, 1 problem i might run into is my sata is in a raid so it might not detect it...

3.1 - i made a partition for dos 5 (loads of old games of mine don't work in xp)... so i installed 3.1 anyway because it's easier to launch games

98 - testing software compatibility... have several other versions of windows on other machines (95 and 2k)
