Dual Boot - Windows XP & Whax Help Please?

Hey guys, I'm a super n00b when it comes to linux. I've just decided to download a Whax LiveCD, and I've burnt that to disc. Could someone please lead me through the process of installing a dual-boot with this live-CD please in a very basic and simple to understand guide?

(Don't worry about explaining the paritions, I can easily do that ^^)

If anyone could do this, it would be fab =) Thanks, Vincent

Your best bet to get as much info as possible would be to search LQ Forums for such things as 'grub' 'lilo' and 'dualboot' and you will get loads of information.
The VERY basics are like this: Set up your partitions. Install the Linux CD. Add WinXP to the bootloader (LILO or GRUB).
It's pretty much certain that you will have no problem doing 2 out of 3 of these. When you get to the part of adding WinXP to the bootloader, if the Linux does not offer to do it for you, then post us some info about what drive/devices/partitions you have, what's on them, and what's in your grub's menu.lst or LILO's lilo.conf file.
