Ok. I'm doing a bit of an upgrade, a bigger hard drive (120GB), a new graphics card (256MB), and I'm also installing a version of XP, so I can indulge in a bit of gaming now and then, since wine is too temperemental, and cedega isn't free (well, technically neither is xp, but you know....), and both aren't completely compatible with windows games.
Anyhoo, I am currently have 2 harddrives, one 20GB the other 30GB. I intend to use the 30GB to install xp on, and the 120 for linux and personal files (although I may use bits of the 120GB for windows things, depending on the size of the install of xp...should fit onto the 30GB....).
Currently, however, I am running a temporary install of mint, accross my 20GB and 30GB HDDs, but I want to try to install xp onto the 30GB hard drive, in order to test it's installed size. However, I cannot seem to be able to install it to hdb (what was hdb under mint anyways ) I have reformatted it as NTFS, from ext3, but to no avail, and I cannot seem to access it from cfdisk, as it says that ity cannot be accessed...
ANy help, or would I be better off just installing it to a partition of the new HDD?
Also, on my motherboard, I have an "AGPx slot, does this mean that any AGP video card will work (with correct adapters, if needed)?
