linux/win32 dual boot
i'd like to set up a linux/winxp dual boot system.
my problem: no linux distribution does properly
support my promise fasttrak133 onboard ata raid
controller. so i would like to try installing it
on a single disk connected to standard ata ports.
would this work? where will the mbr and the
linux bootloader be installed to? (on which disk)
or does anyone know a linux distribution that
has full support for FT133 controllers?
but don't tell me to compile a new kernel. i'm
a linux n00bie :-)

I second BpB.
I use Bootit NG and it is a very good bootloader and makes excellent outside of OS images.
