How hard is it to install Linux on to a PC with WinXP? I've heard the installation is very hard?

I have 2 Hard drives and i was wondering if i use Partition Magic to make a Partition on my second hard drive, i could then install Linux Redhat 8.0 on there?

It's "Easy"

I would disconnect the First drive (master) then connect up the other drive as a slave. Then install Linux onto the slave drive. With the Master disconnected your XP files etc will be safe.

Then to boot into linux switch the boot device to slave.
