give people some time. You don't need to bump of your thread every ten minutes. Can't you install xp and then when installing mandrake select, "use free space on windows partition"? I know in 2000 pro you can select what partition you want it to install on. Have you tried using red hat or mandrake's custom partitioning to parition everything the way you want it but not carry through with the install but write partition tables and then try to install XP
You have to put XP in first for it to ever boot correctly I made that mistake on my machine. I used partition magic to do everything you just pick install linux os and it does everything for you. I only installed one distro other than win but i'm assuming it doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure i've read all the kernels from distros can live in the same boot partition but I'd check around b4 you install the second distro. I've still gut more win than lin in my head.
Distribution: INSTALLED: Mandrake 9.1 , Knoppix 3.2 ,lindows LAYING AROUND MY HOUSE:slackware 9, red hat 9
