I've got W2k Sp4 on my IDE , Primary - Fedora Core on the Slave ,same channel I want to put Xp Sp 2 on a new Seagate 80 gb Sata. I am a relative noob with Linux , but I would like to keep it around as I would like to get to know it better. So will one of you guys give me a couple of pointers as to what to expect or what I can do to minimize any problems with this . If I understand correctly , the XP install will kill the LiLo currently inplace ,but the 2 Windows O/S es should get along . Then all I need to do is re-install it(lilo) after XP is loaded to regain the Boot choice , but the Fedora O/S should be O.K. AM i right ? or should I do something different.
