Here's the deal: At work we changed over from desktops to laptops (Thinkpad R52) a few weeks ago. So now I have this nice laptop for personal usage too, the only problem is that the idiots that work in IT locked these down so tight. User accounts only have access to write to "my documents" folders. Everything is controlled via Group Policy and SMS. Sure, I know I could just grab the admin passwords and change settings (I already have the passwords), but I really would just like to boot to a second XP Pro install to do all the stuff I want to do and leave my work install/partition alone. I've already pulled the laptop HDD out and ghost'd it. What I'm looking for is advice on installing the second XP install and things to avoid. I've only set up dual boot with linux before. Also, how do I differentiate the two installs? I should also mention that there is a "hidden" FAT32 Partition, not sure if this is backup or if it's for the IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad utils.
