    ...ubuntu /kubuntu linux on my winxppc? my hard disk info is like this:
    1) 80 gb-sata
    2) 4 partitions and some unallocated free space
    3) C:7gb ->winxp, D:25gb->data ,similarly E: and f: ALL FAT32
    4) UNALLOCTED SPACE:10GB(i have kept it aside for linux )
    NOW MY QUERY IS THAT
    **I WANT A DUAL BOOT SYSTEM WITHOUT AFFECTING THE "MBR"
    **SO THAT I AM ABLE T REMOVE LINUX/WIN WITHOUT AFFECTING EACH OTHER
    **IS THIS FEASIBLE?
    ** is the / boot partition necessary apart from / and swap
    ** ALSO I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA ABOUT "GRUB" AND IT CORRUPTING THE "MBR"
    ** ONE MORE THING I NEED IS "gcc compiler" ! DOES KUBUNTU COME LOADED WITH IT ?IF NOT PLEASE GUIDE ME REGARDING THE INSTALLATION PROCEDURE!

    ** DUE TO THESE DOUBTS(AND FEAR) ONLY I HAVE DEFERRED TO INSTALL LINUX!!!!!! SO IF ANYBODY COULD HELP ME OUT I WILL BE EXTREMELY THANKFUL

    THANKS
