Fedora / Windows Server 2003 multiboot

Hi everyone,

I'm a new member, I'm facing a problem in installing Fedora and Windows Server 2003 on the same machine.
I have two drives (40GB each) If I install Fedora first, Windows will take over and vice versa.
Do I need to use a third party utility? Like "System Commander"?

What you could do, is have one primary partition and a free space (not patitioned or formatted with any filesystem) only on one hdd (the first one on the primary master, probably) and go ahead with installing windows 2003 server first.

Then, you could start installing fedora core 5 on the unpartitioned space. It should detect the windows installation, and create boot menu's for the same. (I guess)

Use the second hdd, for storage. Make partitions of FAT32 (incase of no special requirements of security) and use it for both Fedora and Windows 2003!

Just a suggestion, to simplify things. You may wait, till you get more solutions on this.
