Partioning a drive with Windows XP to install Mandrake 9.1
Uhm, well, ok, the subject pretty much says it all, but there's other stuff I'd like to know...
Will Windows XP "complain" if I partition the HD? See it as a hardware change and act funny?
How big should the Mandrake partition be? Minimum, and recommend? This includes individual partitions like swap?
I have XP installed on a 20 gig drive, will splitting it in two 10 gigs work? (one XP, one Mandrake)
Can I use PartitionMagic to safely create the Linux partitions beforehand and let the installer use that space, rather than let it resize the partitions and run the risk of losing my data?
Will Windows see the Linux partition? Will Linux see the windows partition?
