Dual Boot question
Hi,there.Newbie on the block,and I am very interested in learning about the Dual Boot Tutorial I read in the forum.
Specifically,I have Windows XP SP2 installed on my PC,and I would like to try Ubuntu as well,but the problem is I don't want to re-install XP and Ubuntu from the beginning,besides,I know how to do that but all my work would be lost if I re-formatted.
So,I read the tutorial about installing Linux OS when you already have a HD with Windows installed.What I didn't get is this:
Do I have to find the HD drivers so as to install them at a later time? I read that this is only necessary when installing an OS previous to Win XP (like Win 2000,e.g.).Did I understand this right?
So,does this mean that I can simply run the SystemRescue Disk and run qtparted,and than install Linux,and then I have a PC partitioned with one side having my original Win XP installation(without re-installing!) and the other side having Linux?
Every answer is appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
