    HD Install & Partition Magic

    For the HD install, I used PartitionMagic to create the ext2 and swap partitions on my HD. No problem at all. It runs from windows, as well as having a cmd line version, and it is extremely simple to use. I used it to make sure I didnt kill my windows partitions. It resizes, creates, deletes, and formats partitions rather quickly. I probably would not have been able to install Knoppix or I would have really screwed something had I not used this program. Give it a try.

    Nope. I let windows handle the OS loading part. It is explained in a Dual-Boot thread in the HD install section.

    Hehe, you got that right! Well, with me anyways...

    I don't get it. Prices for good M$ software (Photoshop, etc.) are WAY too high ($1k!!). I would never pay for it anyways, so what loss is it to the company if I steal it? Im just using their software, not stealing something physical that can actually have a price attached to it. I mean...
    Um, is this turning into a rant?

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I had made the partitions on the same HD as WinXP, but I made an extended partition and then a logical partition inside of that, so that it did not screw with the MBR. PM does this automatically (creating an extended, and then a logical in the extended).
