Re: [edlug] SuSE 8.1 and WinXP

As far as I know, and I'm not sure if this has changed with XP, Windows will 
only boot from the first partition.  

I have Windows XP and SuSE 8.1 installed dual boot happily on my machine but I 
had to install Windows first then run the SuSE installer.  My setup is 
slightly different though as I have a small drive with Windows on it on the 
primary channel, Windows on partition one and Linux on a RAID array on a 
seperate controller.  I have grub installed on the MBR of the Windows drive.
