Dual boot XP and Linux Mint with 3rd HDD for sharing...
So I am getting ready to build my first PC for a HTPC. I have a 80GB HDD and a 40 GB HDD laying around I want to use to get it up and running. They are both PATA drives. I have read around about installing one OS on each HDD, but I am confused. Should I install XP as the master and Linux Mint as the slave or vice versa? XP first or Linux first?
Also down the line I plan on adding a big ol' 3rd SATA HDD that I want to be able to be seen and modified by both XP and Mint. How do I set that up?
I am more familiar with XP but I have had Mint installed on an older laptop for a while now and I am moderately fond of it. So I would like to have the option to try out both OS as my primary OS for my HTPC.
