"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."
