I currently have Windows XP installed on my system. I wish to install Ubuntu as the second OS. I want that at startup I am prompted to select the OS I wish to boot my system with. However, I am facing problems while creating the new partitions. My hard drive is presently partitioned into two drives, both of which contain data although there is 30GB of free space available in both the partitions.
I am a little apprehensive about losing my data if I partition my drive incorrectly during Ubuntu installation.
Kindly guide me through the installation procedure, especially the partitioning part of it. Which option would be best suited?
