    Hi, I've got my dvd of Vista burnt now and it looks likea goer, but beofre I
    install I just want to clear up a few questions.
    I have 2 80GB hard drives on my computer, the first drive has XP Pro
    installed on a 60GB partition (C:) the remainder is unpartitioned space.
    My second hard drive has a 20GB backup partition (F:) and a 3GB virtual
    memeory partition (P:) for my XP Pro. (big performance boost noticed after
    doing this)
    the remainder of the seconfd hard drive is unpartitioned space (around 57GB)
    this is where I want to install Vista and it's where I have been installing
    XP Pro 64, Linux distro's etc, just delete the partition and fix any booting
    problems with xp's repair console, easy.
    Will it be so easy with Vista? If Vista takes over my system, how do I 'get
    it back' when I wipe the Vista installation? I'm not sure it's a good idea to
    let a beta take over my system.
    Cheers from Peter.

    Sorry about this but you may have noticed double postings on this in the
    vista forum, sorry but I was getting an error message saying that my question
    could not be posted and to try again, and will probably get the same message
    when I post this as well.
