installing on a partition
I will be completing a build in the next couple of days and have
decided to install Debian on my new system. However, I also need XP
installed, and I am not sure which I should install on my hard drive
first. I have an extra IDE hard drive I could use if I have to, but
the motherboard I have (D915PBL) only has room for one IDE device, and
I will have a DVD and CD-RW drive on that.
I have installed different distributions of Linux before, and you can
usually setup a partition table. Is it similar with Debian? If I
install Debian first, can I set up my root, swap, home (etc)
partitions and leave one for Windows, or should I install Windows
first and then install Debian? I don't think it matters, but I will
be installing on a 120GB SATA drive that has never been used before.
If I use a setup like this, will I be prompted for which partition I
wish to boot to?
Thanks in advance for any help.
