This is complicated.
I'm changing my current setup quite a bit, and I'm still a Linux n00b (only done two installs), here's my current setup:
hda: Windows XP, installed with no other HD plugged in.
hdb: DVD drive, unimportant.
hdc: Redhat, also installed with no other HD plugged in, GRUB on MBR, manually configured to boot XP.
Here's how I plan on changing it, in this order, don't ask why, it's complicated, ^_^:
1. Install Libranet over Redhat on hdc, install GRUB on the MBR.
2. Remove the current XP HD, replace with a new, unformatted HD. Install XP on the new drive, plugged in as hda.
Will this cause any problems? If I understand correctly, GRUB will install to the MBR of hdc, so installing XP afterwards won't cause any problems.
If I'm wrong, what about this:
1. Remove XP HD, install Libranet over Redhat on hdc, install GRUB on the MBR. Plug XP drive back in, configure GRUB to dual-boot.
2. Remove Libranet HD, install XP on the new hda, plug Libranet HD back in.
Ok, and one last thing, I want to have a FAT32 partition so I can share files between Linux and Windows XP, my questions are:
Which HD should I put it on? Both drives are the same, 40gb so I should never run out of disk space.
When should I partition it? Before I install? As I install? After I install?
How do I partition it in XP/Libranet? Do I need to boot a special program before installing?
Thanks in advance,
