    Extreme newbie need help Installing Slackware 10.0

    I need to install Slackware 10.0 onto a computer that already has Slackware 9.1. My boss wants me to install these as two separate linux distribution with the 10.0 onto a partition (hda3) of the hard drive that is not being used for anything: The current partition is as follows:
    Name Flags Part Type FS Type [Label] Size (MB)
    hda1 Boot Primary Linux ext3 10001.95
    hda5 Logical Linux ext3 29997.60
    hda6 Logical Linux swap 263.21
    hda3 Primary Linux 21426.86
    hda4 Boot Primary NTFS [^B] 18877.02
    Unusable 1776.67
    I am having problems understanding what to do with the partition before I pop in the Slackware CD. Should I delete it and make a couple of new partitions or leave it as is and just tell the setup program to install on that partition. Any help would be highly appreciated.
