I've installed Linux Mint Cinnamon on an older laptop running Vista.
Beautiful. I chose the option that removed Vista, as I didn't care about that OS and now I have only Linux on it and it's amazing.
I do have a nice desktop still running XP. I do want to have dual boot options, but I'm not sure I understand what I see on the screen when I choose the option: " Install Linux along Windows XP"
As I choose that option, I do see the C drive cut in two. I do see the cursor that allows me to increase or decrease the spaces, left or right.
My question is the following.
When I look at the drive divided in two, with the option to either increase or shrink one side of the other, which one is alloted to Linux?
The left or the right? I'd like to make the part alloted to Linux just 20GB so I thought I'd shrink the left part to 20GB, but nothing tells me that this is what I'm doing. What If I'm shrinking the part alloted to Windows?
