I will be building my own computer when I get the money, and when I have it all together, I want to create partitions for my drive; I want a seperate partition for my Operating systems (prolly XP and Whitebox Linux) one for Program Files and one for all my other junk.
I just want to know how to fdisk it, because Partition Magic is not free.
I tried one before with 2 HDD, (HDD1 and HDD2) HDD1 has 2 partition and 4 on HDD2. installed winxp and my documents on HDD1 and set as the master and Win98, win2000 and Mandrake Linux and Redhat on HDD2.
You can simply format and make partion of your drive using XP installer. just leave and dont format the drive you want to install linux since they use a different format. just make a couple of configuration on your Boot.ini and viola! you have multiple OS setup.
