Hi all I would like to ask you experts a question please. At the moment my computer had 2 hard drives -1 Win 2000 Pro and 1 Mandrake 10. I would like to to replace Linux with Win XP. I would like to have a choice of system at bot up. Is it possible please?

Yes.... Format and install Windows onto one of the drives (or partition one). Then Windows XP will ask you which O/S you want to use... Select it and press enter on your keyboard.

You can also use "third party" programs like "BootMagic" which is part of Partition Magic (click here)

Make the Linux drive C: and win2k drive D:

Boot from cdrom with xp in drive and follow the instuctions. It gives you the chance to format c: but you'll need to make up your mind about NTFS or FAT32

Good luck
