    Thats correct. Just make sure your CD-ROM is set 1st in the boot order.

    I heard there were other steps to get the boot option where you can boot from windows or linux.


    And when your installing linux does it give you the option to create another partition for linux to install on?

    Is there anything else I need during or after installing redhat?

    Partition first. Put linux at the end of the drive, about 10 gig should be enough. The rest is common sense or automatic. Bootloader = yes - automatic install.

    What do you mean by (put linux at the end of the drive)?

    Make it the last partiton on the drive so it doesn&#39;t conflict with XP. You can have many partitions before it if you like.

    If The drive is 80gb (75 useable), then XP= maybe 20gig, then partition 2= 20gig, partition 3= 25gig, partition 4 (linux)= 10gig total. (Approximate numbers)
    This last partiton will actually be three separate partitions created by the linux installation, the swap in the middle of it, between the system partition and the user partition.
    Keeping all this at the end will keep XP fom trying to mess with linux or linux from messing with XP.

    Ok I think I understand what your saying. Right now I only have 1 partition,and it has xp installed on it. So now I get partition magic and make another partition 10gb big or so. But what file system should I use? Is ntfs ok to use with redhat 9?
