Tatoos: how to deal with them?
I haven't installed Linux as a dual boot very often, as I'm 100% Linux and proud to be so! Now, someone at work is asking for urgent help to install Linux on her two year old Windows XP computer. Although she hates Windows, she needs to keep it, at least for the timebeing. But what's troubling me is this business of tatoos. On the few machines I've dual installed Linux on, I have never encountered this problem, but I'm still nervous about it, on her behalf. How should she install Linux? Would putting Grub in the MBR risk losing the tatoo? Maybe tatoos aren't really a problem, after all? I dunno, I just want to check just in case.
PS - I think I'm going to hand her a Ubuntu CD and tell her to do the guided partition - I presume Ubuntu does everything necessary?
