Re: Windows XP & Fedora on one computer



I just set up a Toshiba laptop that runs Vista and Fedora 8, with a
partition for Windows, a partition for Fedora, and a shared data
partition that is formatted NTFS. I installed Windows first, then ran
the full Fedora install DVD, and grub picked up both OSs without any
problems. Made a change to the grub config file so that I have more
than 3 seconds to choose which to boot and changed the "OTHER" to
"Windows", and it works.

Now to get the wireless working in Fedora, but that's an epic for another time.
