When you get back from your meeting Tom maybe you'll get this:) Saw that
other post and I was lost:) All I know is on this windows98 machine it
was easy with Suse I put disk 1 in and followed some prompts and I was
done. Unfortunately it doesn't look like it will that easy when I try to
do this on the XP box. If there is a baby step RTFM guide or something
to what I'm going to need to do with partition magic and my suse 8.1 in
so that I can keep XP on one partition and Linux on the other, I'd be
happy to read it or someone can e-mail me any comments off list. Maybe
all of this won't be that difficult tomorrow but we'll see I guess.

thanks for any more feedback.
