Default Old problem out, new problem in ...

The problem of Edubunutu not picking up my onboard network card has een solved. I just ripped out my wireless network card.

But how do I dual boot with Edubuntu (Linux) and XP on the same PC.
I have edbuntu already on the PC on a 35GB partition. I have a 5GB swap file partition and then I have the rest (40GB) as a partition made with the Edubuntu CD. Although If I boot with the XP Cd and then try to delete and create a Windows partition, it say I can't do that.

What is the correct sequence of procedures to follow.

I'm a Linux über-noob. Please keep this in mind.
If beer is not the answer, you're asking the wrong question.

You need to install XP first, then 'buntu will install the GRUB boot loader. It's been so long since I shared a single hdd with the 2 I don't remember if GRUB in 'buntu automagically configures XP, I think it does.
