Chapter 34. OS Mix and Match > Windows 2000 and Linux

Windows 2000 and Linux

Using both Windows 2000 and Linux on the same system is a very rewarding multiboot scenario. This gives you two very powerful operating systems that can work in harmony on the same system. Linux can be booted from any type of partition on any installed disk, be it primary or logical. This enables you to create a Linux partition anywhere you have enough space to put it.

If you are installing Linux onto the same disk as any of your Windows 9x/NT/2000 systems, you must have sufficient unused disk space for the installation. If you do not have enough unused space, you can use PartitionMagic. PartitionMagic will actually shrink any partition if you have enough free space in one of your existing Windows file systems.
