Installing the 2nd OS on my mandriva box
I am running Mandriva exclusively on my desktop now. I have two harddrives hda (40gb) and hdb (300gb). I used up my entire hda for mandriva and am planning to install XP Home on my yet unformatted/unpartitioned hdb. Before I start, I just wanted to make sure I am doing things right, especially from the grub point of view.
1. my hdb (300gb) isnt partitioned/formatted yet. Should i format my 300GB hdb from within mandriva to be set up for ntfs before I start the windows install or should I just boot from my XP disk and start the format/install procedure on the hdb?
2. As of now, my grub menu comes up with the 3 usual options, the regular startup, the nonfb and the other last option (i forget what its called). Would grub automatically make corresponding entries for windows, after my windows install?? if not, how should i configure grub to list the 2nd OS after windows xp has been installed? please help!
