First step to Dual boot XP and Debian 3.0 r3?
I would like to setup a dual boot situation on the following hardware:
Soyo kt600 Dragon V2.0
Athlon XP 3200
(2) Hitachi 80GB SATA hard drives
Currently I have WinXp installed and functioning on "Disk 0". I would like to install Debian 3.0 on the second drive. The second drive "Disk 1" is recognized in the BIOS and in Computer Management as "Unallocated". I have not partitioned or formatted it yet.
I have read numerous How-To's but I have been unable to understand what the first step should be. It sounds like NTLDR is the easiest way to go. I have no problems with tweaking my Boot.ini file, but I am not sure what to do first.
I am somewhat comfortable with the Linux directory structure from playing with my RH9 server. I have never played with Lilo or Grub. I don't have any problems editing .conf files.
If anybody can give me some beginning steps for this I would really appreciate it.
