I have just purchased a brand new HP laptop which comes with vista preinstalled. Of course the first thing Id like to do is install 10.2. Some googling, however taught me that there have been some problems with getting a dual boot setup to work without nuking your partition table/bootsector/vista install. I wanted to ask for any experiences others may have had on a vista machine. Especially concerning partitioning, will yast correctly resize the vista partition (I understand NTFS has changed) or should I use some other tool first? Any tips/experiences appreciated.

First thing you want to do is obtain or create a recovery disk, so that if you trash your system you can recover.
