Configuring A Dual Boot System Question
I would like to configure my laptop as dual boot WinXP and Fedora Core 2, so I can learn to use Linux. My hard drive is 20G and only has one partition with XP currently installed. I don't want to lose any data, so I want to avoid reinstalling if possible. I have been reading info on this for about 2 weeks now, and its just not sinking in.
I know I need to resize my NTFS hard drive, but purchasing Partition Magic is out of the question. Can anyone recommend another tool? Or does Fedora come with something that can do this for me?? The FAQ on their website is confusing and overwhelming for a newbie. I am downloading the .iso's now for Fedora. I have defragged my hard drive and used scan disk to fix any errors and hopefully move all my data to the front of the drive.
Last question. Once I figure out how to resize my drive and create new partition(s), how many should I create and about what sizes? I have seen mixed things on this.
Thanks in advance for any help.
