    Dual Booting


    Hi All,
    I have a machine with Arch on allready which is my test machine and works a treat so I want to start dual booting on my machine here's the setup.

    2 x 80GB SATA Harddisk Striped (Running Windows XP) 160GB All
    1 x 120GB IDE Harddisk (Running Arch 0.72)
    1 x 160 GB SATA Harddisk (NTFS)

    I have installed arch on the 120GB boot I am stuck on the booting between the two OS... Can any one help with sorting code to boot windows.

    there's a dual-booting tutorial on this site somewhere that'll explain it easy enough, or just look for a grub.conf howto
    Operating System: GNU Emacs
