I'm asking for advice or preferences/options in that i will be obtaining a laptop (dv9000z) with 2 100GB SATA HD's that is pre-installed with vista
; well im somewhat of a gamer and would like a more efficient windows OS (when i unfortunately have to use one, though still want to play around with vista for a little bit) and would like to put XP on the same HD as vista while i put linux distros on the 2nd HD. The problem is what ive seen so far is that the BIOS is not able to choose which HD i boot off of first. so would it be better to put fedora on the primary HD so the bios boots linux grubs; since by jims guide: (http://jimlawrnc.mine.nu/mywiki/DualBootLinux
) putting the grub on the primary HD with windows, it will not see the grub for some reason); because i dont really want to go through windows boot manager to get to linux. also if i do this and i get dumb (user error) and some how mess up the primary HD's MRB or linux all together will the bios then go to the slave? HD (where i will have to have a windows boot manager set up properly in this case?)?
sorry for dumb questions just never had 2HD's before
or dual booted before a fedora 6 install. corrections and other idea's are very welcome!
