No, I know for sure that windows 98 will not take all my space, because I've 
done an unattended installation floppy, and have total control over  that 

I've tried oralux before, I didn't considered it until now, because I didn't 
knew of the new features in version 0.7
I'll use oralux 0.7 with speakup desktop to partition my drive, and then I 
will install fedora core 3.
