I said NO when it asked about making the boot records and stuff like that.
Since I had bought and used PartionMagic to create the Linux partitions, I had
BootMagic as well. Under Windows, I set up the dual-boot.
When I chose Linux, I was offered another menu of disk partitions to which I
might boot, including the Windows! Once I ran lilo, I no longer had this
chart, just the linux kernel(s) which I set up.
It is possible, using lilo or grub to include your XP partition to the boot
menu as well. Read up on lino.conf.
I learned the hard way windows can't deal with the partition table if it
wasn't created with a windows tool (or a tool running under windows anyway)
The point'd be, if I have only one windows partition, how'd I resize it
using windows tools in a way that's guaranteed not to cause trouble, so
that I could create a new partition for linux ?
I know lilo and I understand it's configuration - it's great :)
