    If teh 60GB is one partition you are out of luck. You'll have to create a secondary partition. Put ME on C: and XP on D:

    Not if you use partition magic, which also comes with boot magic. I have 4os's on my system all work great. U can add copy or delete in a flash. It will even let you shrink a partition to add an OS.

    well i like to first thank everybody involved for giving me the advise, but later last night while trying to work with partion magic it crashed and i did loose my data which was worth 20 gigs of pretty important stuff and the drive is not accessable now (i was warn and did not backup i am an idiot and thats that) so will have to do it the norm and zero fill the hard drive install good old win me and then win xp. :( will try this again one day, have to get it right for other to know about.
