Virtual Drive linux installation
I recently installed VMWare virtualisation software and tried a few distributions. I have decided to install Ubuntu on the virtual drive. My only worry is that in the installation process it says "Erase entire disk - (hda) 10.7GB VMWare IDE drive" or something along those lines. I want to be sure that this won't effect my 'real' hda which has windows XP pro on it (since I am required to use that for University and therefore obviously cannot damage it).
I realise that this 'hda' is probably referring to its own 'hda' and cannot see, nor knows anything about the XP section of my real hard drive. I just want to be sure before I go ahead with the installation.
