Ok I have this machine (Desktop) with sata harddrives. Im trying to get windowsxp on it, I know this is a linux form but as soon as i do I can get partition magic running and stick in slackware. What partition types should i have for windows to work ? Fat16 ? HTPS/NTFS ? any ideas ?

fat, ntfs.

if the drive is blank. use the XP install to partition. Leave whatever space you want for linux blank. Then just install slack to the free space..
