need some help here people, right i wanna dual bott red hat 9 on my current system,

@ the momment its a dual boot wiv 2000 pro and xp {xp being main usage} 2000 kinda sits there.

how do i go about this is it possble to dual boot them by formating 2k, then putting lynux on this 10 gig drive ,

also lynux needs a swap drive how do i go about this, ive already used red hat as i set up a file server not 2 long ago an was ded im pressed.

I need 2 keep xp on my machine, as all programs run there an im not ready 2 leave the "microsoft reality" just ket althogh thats the plan!

thanks 4 the help im about 2 recive!

just delete the partition that win2k is installed on and use the RedHat install to format the empty space. The 'swap drive' is just another partition, which can be done with the install processes and can easily fit in your free 10 gigs
