Subject: Re: problem installing Debian on
dual boot with WinXP

have to chip in that I've never had any such problem with gparted or grub
with a winxp partition of >8GB (currently 30GB), with grub on MBR.
Osprober's always done its job and gparted has served me well for as long as
I've needed it. I've had this setup for a while (well, over a year anyway;)
now so maybe something broke? Maybe I'm just lucky.
Same here. I use either 20 or 30 gb partitions
for XP and have no problems with grub or dual-booting. Pretty sure it's
a partition table thing and someone already mentioned using cfdisk, which can
be done from booting to the Ubuntu Live CD before
