I just wanted to find out something about permanently installing Linux (Ubutntu) onto one of my harddrives....I have two HHDs on my PC, one (40GB-fully partitioned) which only has my Windows XP Professional, games and my apps installed on it. I have another 80GB that I use for my files (documents, mp3s, etc...). The secondary HDD has 2 partitions (20GB and 60GB) on it and I use one partition for work/study and the other for personal stuff.
Now for my question(s)
A) Is it possible to create a new partition on the 40GB hard drive without having to format it & re-install EVERYTHING?
B) If I install Linux on anyone of my other partitions (on my other harddrive), will I still be able to access my documents and music?
---I ask this because I tried two live CDs (Knoppix and Morphix), and in Knoppix my harddrives were right there on the desktop, but when I tried Morphix I couldn't seem to locate them :
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
