Red Hat I keep reading all these tales of woe of people having bad experiences with Linux. Sure, I've had my own bad experiences, across many an OS, but just lately I've been running a Red Hat Linux 9 desktop full-time at home and have yet to run into any major issue. What follows is an overview of my personal experiences with Linux. But first, a bit about me.

let me tell you why I will never entrust any data to windows again

When did this happen? Was it "after" Mandrake 9.1 got released or before?

If after then

If you were a bit smarter, you would have simply installed Mandrake 9.1. Resize the NTFS partition during install to make some space for Mandrake, install Mandrake 9.1 aside Windows XP and access your NTFS partition and files from there.

else

Try to insall some of the free powerful DOS partitioning tools and still make Linux partitions and get Linux installed and again access your files from Linux.

end if
