I have just installed Ubuntoo - "The Hoary Hedghog" onto a spare HD.
I am runing XP Pro on the main drive.

After installation of Ubuntoo I changed the HD boot preferneces and booted to the XP drive.
However.... I am unable to see the HD that Ubuntoo is on ??

Seems starnge if both are working ?

Windows doesn't have native support for linux formated drives. Linux will format the drives in either ext2 or ext3 format (much like how windows uses fat32 and ntfs). If you want to see your linux drives in windows you have to find a program that will let you do that. What that program is, I have no recomendations, but they are out there, hit google and you will be fine. Don't worry, you linux is still there, windows just doesn't like to play nice with it.
