Sony Vaio cw16fg Win7 to XP+Linux (dualboot)
I got a new machine (sony vaio, vpccw16fg, 2.53 c2d, 4gb ddr3 ram, 512 nvidia graphics card) with win7 pre-installed. I want to downgrade win7 to xp and also add linux on another partition.
I am planning redhat linux, but the worries are for drivers as am unable to find a forum/experienced person who has done tht :) .. me being a newbie on linux.
Anything basic/advanced (manuals/links/suggestions) about going for dualboot tht you guys can suggest will help me... my frn who is again not too exp suggests to go for installing linux first (prepare a rec disk for win7, get a linux bootable cd, format, partition and install linux on 1 partition); but will linux bootable contain partitioning s/w?
