dual boot linpus linux and xp
can someone help me out, im a newbie in linux and i have a mini laptop that had a preinstalled linpus linux, i want to install xp on it and im not sure if i installed xp if their will be a dual boot menu or will it just go directly to xp? ive been searchin on the net and it said their that if i install xp it will overwrite the grub bootloader what do i have to do so it wont overwrite it? i saw some suggestions but im not sure how to do it. what i did first is to partition my hd and i used gparted and made 2 partitions, the new partition i made i chose fat32 and made it the primary drive, one of the suggestions i saw was to disable the primary drive so it wont overwrite grub but the procedure that i was lookin at is for an asus and i have a different brand while others suggest that i just have to install bootloader again but i dont know how to do it.
any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
