re: dual boot Windows XP and Fedora 8



Jerry:
Is there anything on the web -- or does anyone know -- about a procedure
for setting up a dual boot of Windows XP and Fedora 8? I have XP running
on one of two hard drives and would like to install Fedora on the
second. Thanks for the help!

Here are the resources that I found when researching how to DB my Win2K (NTFS) machine:

I had Windows on 1 HD (used the whole drive). I put in another HD for linux (as Primary / slave, or Secondary / master - can't recall). I shrank the Windows partition to make room for /boot. I installed F7 on it.

When F8 was released, I fresh-installed it. I noticed that it created a /boot1 - perhaps I did something 'wrong'?
