Dual-boot with CentOS or Fedora and WinXP
I'm looking to install either CentOS 4.X or Fedora Core 4 on my laptop. I've installed both before (using "Custom" configuration options for the install), but haven't noticed anything about being able to dual-boot the machine. I've already got WinXP on this guy, but I'd really like a *Nix OS on there.
I'm wondering about what I need to know to set this up, both in the *Nix install and the Windows setup. For now, I'll keep Windows where it is, as my primary OS until I've learned enough about Linux to feel comfortable using Windows minimally.
I'm not really sure where to start here. I actually don't even know if this will screw up the data on my hard drive (it's just a 20 gig drive, non-partitioned). Any help is greatly appreciated.
This is not as pressing an issue, but I've also wondered about Multi-booting...like having Windows XP and two or three *Nix OS's on there.
P.S. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. I only did it because Fedora is a Red Hat project and CentOS is based off RHEL.
