I was wondering if someone could explain to me (or direct me to a guide) how I can run multiple operating systems one one pc. On my computer right now I have 2 different hard drives installed. One of them is 100Gb and the second is 80Gb. I use the 100Gb hard drive to save all my data on (music, movies, pics, etc.), and the 80Gb hard drive is where my 'C:' is installed on (on a 25GB partition). My plan was to install a second operating system (Linux) on my computer, and possible a third later on. Is this possible?? Ultimately I would like to be able to choose what OS to run when my computer starts. Can someone please show me a good guide for this. I've tried google'ing it but i find that the instructions are very broad. THANKS

What you propose to have is called a "dual boot" system, so type "dual boot" (with quotes) into google, I just did and loads of pages, too many to list here!
