Dual Boot XP /Mint

Postby graabirtv » Mon Nov 12, 2007 1:16 pm


Interested in messing around with linux a bit I was told to check out linux mint so here I am.

Unfortuantly I dont have multiple computers to run Windows which I need for my day to day operations and then Linux Mint.

So I come to all of you to for guidance and information.

I have been told I want to install linuxmint first and then install my windows installation second, im also told I need to use something call grubb which I assume is what lets me control the boot up options.

So Im just basicly looking for resources, advice, and opnions as to what my next steps should be.

Windows first, Linux distro second. is the correct order. Grub will be installed automatically by Mint to give you a dual boot menu. Set bios to boot CD first before Hard Drive.
