Dual problem


i didn't see mention what distribution you are using, but I have xp and suse 9.0 dual boot on a 10gig using the grub install. Now if you have linux on separate hardrive then you could boot linux from a floppy. example:

1. install linux on hardrive

2. Then from linux make boot floppy

keep in mind there are lots of linux/ms configurations for dual boot, hope this helps.

There's absolutely NO problem !!!!
Just Install Linux on your blank partition and the installer will do the rest...
It will find automatically your windoze partition nd add it in your grub boot menu.

Just install it, it will work.....

Bye Kess...
