Good day, all:

Doug Freestone, VE5UF, has successfully created a dual-boot system
using the procedure I sent him!  :-)   He is going to continue to
help me improve and clarify the procedure notes.

Also, I wanted to re-iterate that I am using a "Linux Live" CD to 
do the partitioning.  This version of Linux runs entirely from the 
CD and does not touch the hard disk at all.  All you have to do 
to run it is boot the CD, hit a couple of carriage returns, and 
then type in "run_qtparted."  You may not even know that 
you are running Linux!  :-)  You do not have to install Linux on your
hard disk.  If you follow the procedure, when you are done
your machine will just have DOS 7.1 and Windows XP on it.


Mark, KD4D
