Ok rolli59 - thanks for the heads up. I just ordered a new HDD, so when it gets here I will make a partition and such.
One more question. Obviously I'm going to have a backup external HDD, so how does one go setting up the backup drive for both WinXP and Linux?
Off topic - but how can one do the same for Win7 and Mac Lion on a MacBook using Bootcamp?
Any specific programs for either?
