    Dual OS, XP and Corel Linux

    I was wondering if anyone could explain how I can install Corel on my already Win Box and have it so I can choose what OS to run?

    It is a bit much to try and explain it shortly ... I think the best way to find information about the dualbooting of a *nix distro and a M$croso$t distro is to search on google ...there are many different ways ...

    You can use the bootloader provided with the *nix distro
    Or you can adjust some settings in the M$croso$t distro ...

    All the options about dualbooting can be found on the big wide web.

    for example to help you on the way ...

    If you have a box with win2000 installed and you add a disk with a *nix distro you can add in the boot loader (lilo or grub) something like this :

    other=/dev/hdf1
    label=win2000

    But as I said there are other possibilities.

    I am curious as what brought you to the idea of Corel linux ? ,It seems an odd choice for a first install.
