Dual-Booting Windows XP and Ubuntu? Answered
I just want to make sure I have this right before I go ahead...
So, right now I have two drives. One is partitioned into two, one half is Win Xp(about 60gb), the other completely blank(about 20gb). Then, my slave drive is just for backup.
I'm planning on installing Ubuntu onto that blank partition. By doing so, it shouldn't affect any of the files on either of the other drives, right? And when it boots it should boot into Windows as usual unless I directed to go to that partition since the windows drive is the first in the boot order.
This, I think, should work without worrying about anything getting wiped right? And this setup won't have the OS's conflicting with each other?
Would I have to use GRUB and if so how?
Help, is greatly appreciated.
