My apologies for going over ground that has been covered before but .....
I have acquired a PC (desktop) w/a decent CPU, a decent HDD, 512 mB RAM
and w/licensed WinXP (that I want to keep available).
I also want Linux (Ubuntu 11.04 sounds good).
Here is the trick: I want a Linux partition to coexist w/the WinXP
partitions but I do not want to reformat / fdisk / restore.
IIRC There are tools that will allow an in-situ repartition that will do
a) add a boot partition that will allow one to choose which OS to boot into
b) add a Linux partition
c) resize the existing WindowsXP partitions - 1 for user image and 1 for
d) access of WinXP partition from Linux (or vice versa) nice-to-have but
Please confirm / advise.
