Dual boot question?

Postby eroz » Wed Dec 26, 2007 4:03 pm

I'm planning on installing Linux Mint 4.0 on my Vista rig. I currently have a 750GB harddrive with 3 partitions, one for Vista OS(60GB), one for programs(60GB), and one for data(movies/music/games/etc.). My question is....should I create another partition for Linux or would it be better to purchase another harddrive, maybe a 160GB, and install Linux and Vista OS on it with 80GB each?

For the price of a new 160Gb hard drive (£30 - £35) I would buy a new one.
