I plan to merge a Windows XP cd with SP3 to have a single XP SP3 install-cd. Then format the lot and install Windows, setting up the partitions and then install Linux and go through the GRUB.
How and when is the partioning handled best?

Linux partitions can be resized but it is a pain to do. Windows is easier but unless you are careful you could mess windows up.
The question really is are you using this for one of those systems or for a custom built system. The reason is because the Compaq disk will load drivers for the compaq so it won't work on the Medion system and vice versa.
Actually - before I start to make a xp sp3 cd I was wondering which Xp cd I should/could use? I have a xp cd from the Compaq as well as one from the Medion.
Thing is that I've sometimes seen manufacturers like Compaq and Acer etc. fill all kind of extra programs and whatnot on the computers when you get them from the factory - and I suspect all these extra things might be included on the install disc.

Wouldn't you install the Compaq on the system?
I personally wouldn't do either because it is first and foremost it is illegal to do since they are two entirely different manufacturers. Second for the reason I mentioned it would be a pain to try and take out the extra's out of the OS.
