This is my first attempt at installing linux.
I currently am planning on dual booting windows xp and mint linux. I have many hard drives installed, 2 IDE raid arrays on a controller, one on the primary IDE controller, and one SATA 36g Raptor, which i currently have XP installed on.
The windows install is complete, with the primary partition formatted in ntfs, which is for the file system, and a second logical drive for the swap file(FAT32)
I intend to have linux and xp on the same drive(36g raptor)
The first time i installed mint, it went fine, made 2 partitions manually, one ext3 for the filesystem, and one for the swap. In the final screen before install i did not see the option to change where grub is installed. It installed on hd0, and when i restarted the computer, windows booted right up, not giving me a boot loader.
I am not sure how or where to specify the boot loader be placed, but i have a feeling it's in the wrong place.
Any help is appriciated!
