Hi, I am building a new system and am going to put Windows XP and Ubuntu on the system.
Should I get 2 hard drives, one for each OS or just partition one drive?
Which is easier to make OS changes in the future, such as changing flavors of Windows or Linux?

Thanks for any input.

Linux uses its own filesystem. Unless Linux can run on a NTFS you will have to install windows on a NTFS partition and Linux on w/e linux file system. Need 2 sepperate partitions.
