Dual boot Linux and Windows
Hello Linux Community:
I am a new Linux user who has begun to use Fedora Core Three. I have the complete distribution of Fedora Core Three on my server, however, I would like to create a dual boot for Windows Server 2000, also. Currently, as I am writing, I am installing Windows 2000 on my server. I believe, according to Linux experts, first install Windows, then Linux.
However, I am somewhat apprehensive about corrupting my Basic Input Output System, forcing my hard drive not to be able to boot. Is this possible? (I do have backups of all my data - including my previous Linux install and Windows install of the server.)
I would like to know how to boot Fedora Core 3 and Windows 2000 Server. I would like to have them boot on one hard drive, only. (It seems like all these forums do not really give any detail directions on how to complete this task.)
I am still "new" and "young" to Linux, thus, requiring some more-in-detailed directions.
If anybody could perhaps point me off to a location, that shows screen shots and/or directions of this task, I would greatly appreciate it.
I am really looking forward to using Linux and Fedora Once again, any help would be great!
P.S. Here is an overall summary of the goal:
-Dual Boot Windows 2000 and Fedora Core 3
-Windows 2000 Server Already Installed
-Only install on 1 hard drive
-Windows 2000 is formatted NTFS
P.P.S What problems could I face in the future once getting these operating systems working? For example, if I were to install a Microsoft Service Pack, would it damage my dual boot? What about backup?
