Thank you for your response. I guess I should have been clearer with my intentions.
Yes, I will be dual-booting this machine.
What I MAY want to do in the future is re-install Winblows. IBM took the cheap way out and put all of the re-install data on a hidden partition that I can activate by hitting F11 during the BIOS startup. I have heard that GRUB may make that partition unusable, so I want to find a way to force GRUB to recognise this hidden partition.
Any hints as to where to look for information would be greatly appreciated. BTW, I am using Fedora Core 2 because I bought the book a while back. I searched for this kind of info in the book in vain, which is why I'm scouring the net.
