    I'm a Linux newbie. I am building a system and plan to install Windows XP and Linux ( thinking of Mandrake 8.2 - read it is the most installation and user friendly).
    Would appreciate if someone could send an outline of the basic steps for partitioning and dual boot and installation order - XP first or Linux first.

    I'm not sure about the partitioning but you should install Windows first....its boot loader tends to clobber everything else....the Linux bootloader easily copes with other O/S boot loaders which may be already installed and provides a good dual boot base.
    The older I get...the better I was
