"Stormix Technologies, Inc. has announced an agreement with
PowerQuest(R) Corporation to include the PowerQuest Linux Prep Tool
with the Stormix product Storm Linux 2000. The PowerQuest Linux
Prep Tool, which is designed specifically for Linux users and based
on PowerQuest's PartitionMagic(R) patented technology, will provide
Storm Linux users with a fast and non-destructive means of
installing a Linux OS on an existing system."
"For sophisticated users like our customers, a partitioning tool
is a basic need," says David Talmor, founder and CEO of Stormix
Technologies, Inc., "and PowerQuest is the pioneer and leader in
partitioning technology. Stormix is very pleased to meet its
customers needs with the PowerQuest Linux Prep Tool."
"Previously, installing Linux was a time-consuming process that
required the user to back up and format the hard drive and then
create a new partition and restore previous data before installing
the Linux operating system. With the PowerQuest Linux Prep Tool,
users can easily and safely install Storm Linux within minutes,
while continuing to operate an existing OS, thus protecting
existing OS settings. With one click of the mouse, the PowerQuest
Linux Prep Tool allows users to create a Linux partition on which
to install Storm Linux. The new partition is created without
destroying existing data."
