yep, turns out that's what i did. haha.
so i got the right ISO's and stuff and got FC3 all loaded up, but for some reason GRUB was freezing when i reboot my computer and wouldn't let me boot from either OS. luckily i know more about windows than linux and was able to use recovery console to rewrite my MBR. so how do i make GRUB work or is there a better boot program that someone would reccomend?
PS - i have linux and XP installed on two seperate hard drives, so do i need to create a /boot partition on the FC3 drive? i thought i would be able to load it from the other hard drives MBR, but i'm not so sure now. that's also where i installed GRUB to - the XP MBR that is.
