    Hi,

    My partition structure is:
    C: Fat32 5.00 GB Healthy (System) Primary Partition
    D: NTFS 10.00 GB Healthy (Boot)Logical Drive in Extended Partiton
    E: NTFS 17.26 GB Healthy Logical Drive in Extended Partition
    Free Space 5.00 GB in Extended Partition

    When the partition chooser screen pops up, only four partitions are
    displayed like this (not exactly):
    Unused 12 KB
    C:
    extended DOS, 32.26 GB
    unused 12 MB

    I have windows xp home edition installed.
    So how do I install FreeBSD?
    I was planning to make a logical drive in the free space and move the
    contents of C: to the new logical drive, then delete the c: slice from
    FreeBSD and install it in the free space created by deleting c:.
    But then XP will not boot. So to boot XP, I will copy the files it
    needs to boot in D:. Will this work? and is this safe?

    Reply soon,
    Vedant
