I am looking towards creating a dual boot scenario on my computer (XP, and Ubuntu) and I am in need of a bit of assistance.
Some background and foundation:
Present OS = XP SP2
The main partition is NTFS, however the "backup" partition is FAT(16 or 32, I am not sure)
Now, to my main question:
I realize I can partition this further so I can have a dual boot situation, but I am worried about losses that may occur. I haven't had much time lately to read up on the process, but I have seen warnings about loss of data files, etc. and my being cautious to a fault, I haven't proceeded any further in my quest.
So, what precautions should I take, and what is going to be the process I need to follow to get to where I want to be?
