Hello! I'm using winXP in a 80Gb hd. I have two partitions, C and D, C with all installed programs and D with data. I wanna install Debian, but still keep Windows. What should I do? I mean, how do I install both OS?
Thanks and regards,
Thx. Now, I downloaded partition magic. Should I install first winXP and then Debian? i want to format both my partitions, begin from scratch. So I was thinking leaving winXP in the fisrt partition and Debian in the rest of the HD. Thing is I have already formatted my C partition in NTFS. SHould I reformat it to FAT32?
*If you want to write from linux to windows without installing third party software and few configurations, format windows as fat 32.
I would choose NTFS because it has more features,etc. and create a small partition of 1gb(fat32) to share data between windows and linux(reading and writing from windows or linux easily)
* i would install windows first, that's what i used to do when i was dual booting.
Good luck, it is not as hard as it seems, everybody feared it at first, would i erase my windows... :-), everything will be alright. when you will install debian, do not delete the NTFS partition and that's it.
Hello again! Well, I did the formatting, have winXP in one partition and Debian (after a couple of tries) in the second partition. It all works fine, but, there are some things I couldnt config.
* I have no sound. I have a sound blaster live card, but couldnt find a way to setup it. Of course, couldnt find where to set it to eax.
* I have 800x600 resolution. I went to the display settings, but it only went up to this config. I have a 19' monitor, so imagine how it looks. What can I do about it? The monitor's brand is Philips 109E5
* Couldnt make an internet connection (I'm writing from the winXP partition, and it isnt the idea). I have dsl, using an usb amigo modem. Thing is I dont know where to make it. In winXP, when I install the modem drivers, it automatically brings up the connection, I don't have through all the usual windows settings.
I think those are the crucial items for now. Can you help me out?
