So the question is how do I install mint without affecting his hard drive? He's using windows 7 and I'm using a 80gb external drive.
Manual partitioning (advanced) and installation without installing grub. Install LILO-bootloader afterwards to the external hard drive. ==>> viewtopic.php?f=42&t=56726
An example LILO-installation to hard drive sdbsudo lilo -b /dev/sdb
Edit: You can boot Mint using this CD
and install LILO afterwards ..
