RE: Installation order for VISTA/RH5 dual boot



So does the "/boot" partition need to occur before some cylinder/block
value in order to work (i.e. within the first 500MB of disk)? 

i.e.
  Partition 0: 75MB  (VISTA boot partition??)
  Partition 1: 100MB (RH /boot)
  Partition 2: 120GB Vista
  Free Space of 20 GB for RH
  Partition 3: Vista Recovery

Thanks.

I would agree with what you have heard, and not install RH first.  The 
first thing is to get the drive partitioning of the drive done first.
One 
trick which I do is make the windows partition the active partition.
With 
this configuration, it is possible to reinstall either os with out 
impacting the other os.  (I have not tried this with vista)
