Dualbooting xp and linux

Recommended Posts

Anything special I should do before I install linux? I've got 2 sataII drives, one for storage, the other for more storage and the os. If I just take some space off of the sataII drives and make a new partition to install linux on, should everything work once installed? So I will have a choice between xp and linux at startup.

I assume you are just useing one harddrive. I would look into a boot manager as well. Sorry you will have to google that one. I really dont know that much about them. Use your program to partition the way you want it. Install lynix. Then install your boot manager when you boot up. I think acronis comes with a boot manager. I think that would be your best bet. www.lynix.org may be a place to poke around for more information
