Where should I install codec like dvix, xvid? In the partition which win xp is on and boot from, or another partition? I would like to install as less programs as possible on win xp partition.

Hey there okeee, I would recommend installing your codecs on your win xp partition. Codecs acts like drivers and should be installed with windows. Depinding on what codecs package your are using, it uses some of windows files.

The codecs, isn't that big anyway. If you decide to install things like media players, you can select a different partition other that the one windows is loaded on.

Cool :whistling:

Well, Live messanger can be installed on a different partition from xp. But these kinds of programs (Windows programs) I recommend installing under windows partition, in program files. But it would not have any negative effects.
