If you are going to install Linux on a system to be dual booted with Windows:

  • Install Windows first

  • In sizing the Windows partition(s), leave free space for the Linux partitions (or create partitions to be formatted later by Linux)

  • Windows must be installed on a primary bootable partition. (Linux can be installed on any partition.)

  • While or after installing Linux, install lilo to the MBR

  • Edit /etc/lilo.conf (as root) so that the Linux image is listed before the Windows image so the proper OS (Linux) boots by default. (After editing lilo.conf, run lilo (as root) to store the right stuff in the MBR.)

There is a way to make Windows and Linux "share" the same swap partition -- when we remember how, we'll add instructions here.
