"Running both Linux and Windows on the same computer is any easy way to have the best of both operating system worlds. Perhaps the easiest and safest way to do that is to use PowerQuest's Boot Magic and Partition Magic products for boot and partition management."

"PowerQuest's Boot Magic has an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) configuration menu. The Boot Magic GUI configuration menu lets you add or delete OSs from the boot selection menu by simply pointing and clicking with your mouse. It also lets you set other boot selection properties simply by pointing and shooting with your mouse."

"Partition management let's you create, format, delete, modify, resize, move, and copy hard drive partitions. Perhaps the safest and easiest way to run a multiple boot computer is to use a different primary hard drive partition for each OS that you will install. That's where Partition Magic comes in."

"Of course there are other products you can use for boot management such as System Commander and LiLo that will let you have both Linux and Windows installed on the same computer. Or you can use a product such as VMware, which lets you run several operating systems, including Linux and Windows at the same time."
