Has anyone tried to dual-boot Linux and Windows XP? After both installs are complete (linux 1st to partition) linux will always boot but WinXP won't at all. Would having GRUB on the harddisk help ?

Steven,

If you are using the Windows boot loader in any part of this, Windows must be installed on /dev/hda1.
This was certainly true up to and including NT and I doubt the Microsoft have fixed it, since its only a problem to non Microsoft users.
