Disk Config for Dual Boot?
« on: February 16, 2009, 04:26:20 AM »
I am building a new PC from scratch and want to dual boot XP and Ubuntu.  I have two 1TB drives.  I was planning to run RAID 1, whereby one drive would mirror the other drive, and install XP, Ubuntu, and all data on the single drive.  Now I’m thinking maybe I should reserve the 1TB drive for data and install two smaller drives, one to hold XP and one to hold Ubuntu and their respective programs.  In this latter config, the OS and programs would not be mirrored.  I’m new to dual booting and linux.  I was hoping someone could give me some advice on the best way to configure everything.  

Thanks in advance.
