How to install linux on a second hard disk
I tried to search a comprehensive how-to around and here in these forums, but I could not find something for me.
I have 2 hard disks; on the first (master) there's Windows XP; the second is a 240 Gb Maxtor with a single NTFS partition, which i've been using as a "repository" of files, music, etc.
I'd like to install linux on this second hd, so that to have a dual boot (in case of success, my wife would keep on using windows, while I finally would use linux only). The secondary question is: do i have to make a little ntfs on this second hd to allow files exchange between Xp and linux (i think linux can't write on ntfs?)
Thanks a lot in advance
ps: I find this thread here, but this dude has already installed linux
