I'm running WinXPpro on an 80gig drive (only one drive on my machine). I want to install Linux on it also. So, the question is....Would it be better to install another HD and run it off of there, or could I partition the current drive and run it off a single drive? I'm using a P4 i845 board so I'm sure that it's capable of running 2 HD's.
Question 2....To partition a single drive, would this require the use of something like Partition Magic? I know that Windows has a partition program but it stinks, how good is Linux's (Mandrake or Red Hat) partition app?
Any advice would be great. Thank you.
