Hi. I'm a new user in Linux. Well, I have formatted my computer and have installed Ubuntu on a logical partition (rather than the primary partion). I did this because I want to install Windows at a later stage, wanting it to be my primary boot.
First, is this the correct way to do it?
Second, when I want to install Windows Xp, how to make sure that no partition overlaps the other and how to I make sure to have a boot menu?
Thanks in advance.
First, you need to create a bootable floppy disk that
will get you into your linux system in case the boot
loader becomes damaged. In fact, Windows will overwrite
the GRUB or LILO boot loader, and you will need the
floppy disk to boot linux and reinstall the bootloader
after the installation of windows. Your installation
program probably asked you if you wanted to create
the boot floppy during installation. I can't remember the exact command.
First, thanks for your reply. Well, while installing ubuntu it didn't promote me to install a bootable file on floppy. Anyway, ubuntu is now installed and working properly plus it's currently the only operating system (it uses GRUB boot loader) .
Now, how can I create this bootable floopy? If there's a guide that you can lead me to, I would be thankful.
