Dual Boot Evesham?

  [DELETED] 11:55 30 Dec 2003

I have just taken delivery of my lovely new evesham but want to install Linux on it as well as Windows XP.

Am I better off buying a second hard drive to do this?

Ah I see - that explains your protective post in Consumerwatch.

Do i take it you have an equally brand new Mesh?!

perhaps someone will explain what you two are on about, just looked in consumerwatch and can not find the link...

Getting a second hard drive is the best solution as you won't have to create partitions and re suffle data on your C: drive. Using a second hard dirve means you won't even have to touch your existing data and so theres less risk if any thing goes wrong.

The other way is to use partitioning program to split your existing hard drive into multiple smaller ones.
