Dual Boot WinXP and Redhat 7.1


I have a second computer that I'd like to install RedHat 7.1 (because Oracle is certified for 7.1) and WinXP for games.

My question is does any one have a useful HOW TO document for this?

Which OS should be installed first? Is there any tricks to doing this? Any help please...


Thanks,
Mikey

Install XP on the hdd, but make sure to save however many gigs you want to install rh on a seperate partition plus some swap space. Then stick in the rh CD and boot up, then viola

Also, if your XP partition is NTFS, and you're not interested in totally formatting everything, I would try http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-ntfs/. They have a program called ntfsresize that worked for me very well, and all my data was still working (even though it might be good to backup JUST incase). That'll free up plenty of room for redhat. Redhat's installation pretty much holds your hands through the whole thing. Just read up on how to partition your hard drive. Also, don't forget to make a fat32 partition if you want to share files between redhat and windows.
