Suggestions on dual boot (Suse+WindowsXP)-How to?
I am thinking of installing Suse 10 Eval 64 on my laptop. This is how my laptop is currently configured:
C: - 10GB - Windows XP
D: - 45GB - Data
I would like to re-size D: to 30GB and create another 15GB logical partition for Suse.
First, should I have the Linux partiton be before or after the Windows partition on D:? i.e should Linux be the 2nd or 3rd partion on the drive?
Second, if I install Grub, will it automatically recognize that C: is my Windows OS and add that to the boot menu?
Third, can I install Linux to just a blank space or partition, or does it need to be a whole drive? From what I remember from the last time I install Suse, in the partitoning I dont remember seeing where I could just use the free space of a drive.
Lastly, would it be better if I just installed Linux on another USB attached drive?
