Recently I received the Linux Technical Resource Kit from Novell because I had a keen interest in Linux. I was wondering if I could run both Windows XP Home and SuSE 9.1 Pro on one system.By the end of the month I will be ordering a new PC from Dell that has Windows XP Home Pre-installed.

I've never used Linux before and I'd prefer if I had Windows as well as Linux so I have something to fall back on if I get lost. What I want to know is if dual booting the OS's is even possible. If so what will I need?

If you know of any guides that could help me, please post them.

Thanks
