I printed and did the exactly what it says in the "Can I dual boot Linspire and MS Windows?" instructions. I did all the partitioning with the PartitionMagic, BootMagic program.
I reboot with the Linspire CD and when I click "Advanced Options" it shows only 2 selections, #1 Run Diagnostics and #2 Main Menu.
It doesn't say anything about a partition to install it onto, which I have drive H: set as FAT32 and formatted for it. so I only have these 2 choices and if i choose to Install Linspire on the hard drive it will wipe out all the partitioning I did and say bye bye to XP Home on drive C:. How can I install it so I have both OS's on the hard drive?

try erasing the FAT32 partition and just leaving free space, it should see the free space and ask you if you want to install and partition the free available space
