Run Ubuntu. Choose to install to C:\\ or make a new partition. After that, everything is automated.<br />

dont use reiser as your boot partition. Use Ext3. Less hassle. Use Ext3 on both root and home too. Ext3 = stable = less hassle = better compatibility

if gentoo says that these are compatible, they sound better for a file system.

</div>I thought you could only use ext2 on the boot partition, LOL last time I installed Gentoo I formated it as reiser and got an error after I rebooted. LOL 5 hours a waste.<br />
root and home though Reiser(thats just what I always use) and you actually don't format the Swap as 'swap' you just select it as the linux-swap mount point.

If you are looking to have a common medium for both xp and linux to work from I would suggest adding a fat32 partition to the setup so that you can hold your media in a common location for easy access. Do you have the Gparted live disc? you should really get it. It is a life save for managing partitions on multiple systems. I use it all the time. But I must admit that with my recent work schedule I often get to one of my computers and have no idea what files are on it. My laptop is the only think that seems familiar to me now.

I disagree. I think you should just format the linux how you want it, and just give windows access to your home partition using the ext3 driver:<br><a href="http://fs-driver.org/" target="_blank">http://fs-driver.org/</a>
