Dual boot with Win XP and SuSE

Postby farid nsari on Mon Aug 11, 2008 4:34 am

Please someone advise if Mint Linux can be installed on a machine whch already had Windows XP and SuSE 11 with grub bootloader.
Can a third system be installed without disturbing the other two and will Mint Linux recognize the previous Operating systems and give an option of loading any one of the three systems.
Thanks for any assistance provided.

Mint is very nice in this respect. It will search for all other operating systems and add them to the Mint grub
If you have a complex partition structure I recommend manual partitioning when you install (not the guided one)
