XP/Linux dual boot

Does anyone have any idea how I can manage an XP/Linux dual boot (I want to use debian), I can't find anything about it on the internet!

Try this article - on zdnet

If you are looking for a how-to on just XP/Debian, you don't need to. The hard part is getting XP to play which requires some kind of software to switch or pick which OS to boot. It should not matter what Linux you are using (or which Windows).

I use Mandrake and XP and XP just doesn't like to play (Without assistance that is) Go to download.com and get XOSL, its free, looks good and certainly does the job.
