Full Version: Dual Boot Problems Ahead?

So I have SuSE 8.2 on one drive - -I'm about to add my 2nd drive to my computer and install XP on it . My question is whether XP will fuck with my Grub booting. Ideally I would like to default to booting into Linux (unless otherwise stated) but some people tell me that Windows "doesn't like to share with other OSs" And will somehow override my Grub booting and install it's own boot loader on top of it. I woud imagine that I will need to -reinstall grub after installing XP anyway, but am unsure of what will happen with installing XP in the first place. Massive problems ahead or "not too big a deal?"

Any advice, information? blink.gif

The XP install is going to over write the mbr of the boot drive....I recommend that you use Bootpart and modifiy the XP bootloader after the install of XP. Here are some instructions for bootpart.
