Evening all

I've made space on the hard disk that holds my Ubuntu installation so that I can install Windows XP and dual-boot.

Will the Windows install mess up GRUB? If so, how can I install Windows and keep Ubuntu working as normal?

Thanks

Will

You'll need to reinstall Grub after installing Windows.

Perhaps you already knew this, but make sure you install windows in a primary partition. It does not need to be the first on the hdd, however.
