Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have installed Ubantu in my aspire 5050. Now I want to install win XP so that I can open MS Office from Linux

Answers :

Do you want to make a dual-boot system? you must have installed windows OS first and leave a non-partitioned drive in your hard Disk. Then you can install Ubuntu next, instaling it to the non-partitioned drive. When the PC boots, you will be prompted to what OS to boot.

Anyway, you can Install Windows XP in any free Drive. But it is dangerous since Windows Installer might destroy your Ubuntu installation files.
