    You'll need to install CRUX, then edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst file to contain a section for Windows XP. You can find example menu.lst files posted all over the web and there are lots of them posted on these forums so a quick search should yield one.

    Have fun with CRUX!

    Oh, I should add that if you are new to Linux, you'll find that CRUX is not a friendly distro to start out with. That said, CRUX is a great distro for those familiar with Linux.

    Yes, Ubuntu, Fedora, Suse, and Mandriva are all considered easy for new users. No, I don't do any instant messaging - got burned out on that early on.

    All right. Do you know anything about primary and slave drives? I have another hard drive and this is would make it so easy, but my slave drive is connecting to the hard drive and therefore windows will not boot properly. And this hard drive can run linux, and the other windows. easier..
