I had some time this weekend to play with my new machine. I got a second hard drive (40Gig for $100!) and a CD burner. But I'm having trouble configuring Windows 2000 and Linux together. Linux needs a boot partition on the low part of the first drive (at least RH 7.1 install wants it that way) and Windows wants to be on the first partition.

When I defined three partitions, one for Windows, one for Linux /boot and third big data partition for Windows, Windows was not able to format it. I don't know why!

There are no error messages to be found - only "Sorry I can't do it". Grrrr....

I need to come up with partitioning that works, but it takes time to fiddle with all these installs.
