    Dual Boot


    Hi there,

    Im completely new to Linux (I bet youve heard that before! :P) and Im thinking of Dual booting it with XP Pro. I currently have XP Pro installed, and want to install SUSE 10.1 on a separate partition.

    My question... Is there anything I should be aware of before going ahead with this? Anything I need to change, set, edit etc before I start the Linux install?

    Many thanks

    Russ

    Create a 'free/unpartitioned' space for SuSe. during installation, select 'Unpartitioned/Free sapce for install'. installer will take care of partitioning and formatting. Dual Boot is default. dont change anything in Boot Loader section.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
