I recently did a dual boot with XP and RH9. It's the first time I've done anything like it and it took a few times but I got it.
I searched google and this site for the info on the partitions I needed and then printed the instructions.
XP allows for partitioning during the install so I did a clean XP install (Partitioning at the beginning at the prompts.) then loaded linux.
Do a search on "40 gig (or whatever) harddrive linux partition"... snoop around.
I'm REALLY new to fooling with this sort of thing but I got it to work so there's hope for anyone...
A good and bad thing about this site: You're not gonna be spoon fed so you have to do some
legwork yourself. Plenty of info out there if you look.
By the way, I just went to Staples and plunked down $25 for Redhat 9. It was a breeze to install just kind of click through the menus and you're done. One thing about RH is the lack of mp3 support but you can patch it with programs online. I run GTK-Gnutella as a p2p (like Kazaa but it operates on more networks.) Still working on burning CD's with Gnometoaster...
I also want to run my own server for my goofy little website below but I'm still getting my feet wet.
