[xubuntu-users] Xubuntu & Windows dual boot?

Yes, that's the preferred way to go.  Installing Windows first works well
because Xubuntu (and other Debian-based distros) do a good job of seeing
other installations and modifying the grub boot-loader entries to accomodate
the other OS's.  Windows does not do a good job of accomdating other OS's on
a hard drive.

I triple-boot Windows 2000, xubuntu 6.10, and fedora 6 on a laptop, and
installing the two GNU/Linux distros has not caused a single hiccup with my
Windows install.  (btw, Xubuntu is the one that I like to use.  The others
are ones that I have to use.)   :-)
