Setting up dual-boot debian linux with Win2Kpro - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I have two 60 gig hard drives, primary drive C dedicated to Win2K. Drive D has absolutely nothing on it, and is recognized by Win2K as drive D. How do I install debian linux unto drive "D"?? Drive "D" is set up as "slave"....

    This sentence is self-contradictory. If it had absolutely nothing on
    it then there would be nothing for W2K to recognise as drive D. Presumably
    it in fact has one large Windows partition on it.

    Delete the Windows partition on your second drive and create Linux
    partitions in the space thus created.
