  1. Hi, I know probably a thousand questions have been asked in how to do a dual boot but I really know nothing about computer (except very basic stuff). I love to learn and I think the only way you can learn is to do it yourself, so here I am looking for fool proof step-by-step guide on how to do it. I have XP running on a Pentium 4 machine with no partition. Can anyone help me! Please!!!!

    Yes, I want to set up dual boot, but I only saw the article about dual boot for Win 2000/XP and Win 9x....I can't see anything about dual boot for XP and Linux...sorry if I'm mistaken...thanks

    ok, I read somewhere that you're a newbie and want to install Linux, it's strongly suggested that you don't do dual boot since if you screwed up, you won't be able to get back your window. Is that true?
