[solved]Dual Booting and Partitioning
im a newbie linux user. (not complete newbie)
im really used to ubuntu now...
but i have a doubt now...
I referred to this video, to install ubuntu(NOT on windows partition) and also run windows XP, and im well enjoying ubuntu.
Currently, i have some hard-disk issues, and i'm going to format the whole hard-disk.
I will format and repartition using windows xp installer.
I'm leaving 20 GB for ubuntu.
So I can install ubuntu in 2 ways...
1) While re-partitioning, i can leave 20 GB unallocated and later put ubuntu there
2) Install windows XP the normal way, and then allocate 20GB for ubuntu using GPART - by shrinking a windows partition. (as shown in video)
Whats better and more efficient.
