Dual boot setup

Hi,
Is setting up a dual boot system just a case of creating a new partition and putting a new o.s. on the new partition or is there a little more to it than that.

Thanx in advance Chris

Yes, bascially that is all there is to it.

Depends though on, firstly, what OS you currently have installed, and secondly, what OS you want to install.

If you have Win95/98/Me then you can install 2k / XP easily.

In general, the older OS goes on first.

It really does depend on the OS's involved and the order in which they're installed,so a little more info on your present arrangement and that which you'd like to achieve would solicit specific advice.

I have two pc's networked both running xp pro but the upstairs pc isnt very quick and dosent have much capacity so i was thinking about putting windows server 2003 downstairs and access it from upstairs.

Windows Server 2003 uses the same type of boot loader as w2k and XP, so yes, you can create a dual boot on the downstairs machine by installing it to a separate partition.

Using w2k3 server is a bit of an overkill, and I'm not sure what difference it will make.
