Installing Fedora on 2nd IDE hard drive for dual booting?

Post by digital_pu » Wed, 15 Sep 2004 03:50:42


Hi, I'd like to install Fedora on my second IDE drive. Can this be done
easily for dual-booting? I have this setup:

c: NTFS (WinXP -- don't want to touch this drive)
d: NTFS (but I will make a FAT32 partition)

I don't want to touch my c: drive, except maybe to install a bootloader.
In my new d: partition, can I install everything I need for Fedora?

Thanks for any information.

Are c: and d: two drives, or two partitions?
To install Linux, you will need at least one Linux partition. Almost
all installations use at least two partitions, root and swap. The swap
partition is usually twice the size of RAM, up to 512 MB.
You can't create a Linux partition in Windows, it's part of the
installation process in any Linux distro.
