    installing Windows XP on Mandriva Linux


    Hi,
    Currently I have Mandriva 2006 installed on my machine. Now I want to make a dual boot with Windows XP on the same drive.
    Could anyone let me know how to go about?

    System specs:
    Hard Disk : 40 GB
    First 20 GB alloted for Windows and named as Primary partition and Linux is installed in the remaining space.

    Hi itcareer2004,

    Welcome to the LinuxForums.

    its a bit tricky to install Windows after Linux.
    insert Windows installation CD and install Windows. Windows will re-write MBR and remove Linux Boot Loader (Lilo/GRUB). you have to re-install GRUB after windows installation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
