Dual Boot XP and Mint
I'd like to add to my new Desktop, Mint and or Fedora. Is there a video or manual for dual and triple boot? This XP is brand new from the factory and working well on my Asus powered computer.

I'd like to keep 100 Gigabytes for XP out of 500.

Beforehand I put Mint 7 with XP on my laptop, but it left very little space for XP.

I am unfamiliar with manual partitioning. I am looking for a youtube video now.

I have Mint 8 and also have one month old copies of CentOS.

There are 83 bazillion tutorials on booting---simply search here and on Google. The link below in my sig is pretty old, but might still be useful.

M$xp would have to be the easiest M$ O/S to dual / triple with.
- just pop that newly burnt cd into the cd-drive & shutdown / restart your desktop !.
if it's set to boot from the cd, 1st, the just click on the install icon on the linux desktop.

go with the option the share the hdd with the existing O/S ( M$).
use all the default(s) that appear during the install.
If you go with Mint as the linux O/S, use mint 7.

There is no option when installing Linux Mint Debian to share the hdd with the existing OS. In this case the existing OS is XP.

What to do?
