Best way to set up Mandriva Linux/Windows Dual Boot
I am setting up Mandriva on my laptop but even though I'm not a big fan of Windows I will need to use Windows for a few programs needed for my job.
What is the best way to set up a dual boot environment? If I'm correct I can set up a program such as VMWare or Parallels within Linux to use Windows but since I don't have a fast laptop I will need dual boot.
Which should I install first, Windows or Mandriva? I only have the option of Windows Vista now but can get Windows 7 when it comes out.
If I am correct I will have GRUB menu at bootup asking me which to boot with but do I simply install Mandriva and then Windows or vice versa, Windows and then Mandriva. How would I go about partitioning the hard drive and setting it up for dual boot.
Thank you for your help. I'm a newbie to Linux so don't know much about this yet.
