Unhappy Dual boot with Slack 8.1 and XP?!?


Ok... I have a windows machine... there I said it! What I want to do is put Slackware 8.1 on it and dual boot it so I can.... well you knwo that is. Ive never dual booted a system before and dont even know if its possible between 8.1 and Windows XP. What would I need to do in order to accomplish this?
