Users / Re: Install next to Windows XP?

What about the part...

If I choose to boot into LinuxMCE in order to set up a recording for tonite and then restart and boot into Windows XP in order to surf the web or play a game... the show won't record right?

They are obviously two seperate operations systems and processes don't run while booted into another?

I have never used LinuxMCE before but have used a few different Ubuntu versions and enjoyed them.  I've futzed around with different Windows Media program and haven't found one I love.

Is there a way to install LinuxMCE without disturbing my current Windows XP installation?  I am not ready to make a full transition to Linux.  I do understand the idea of dual booting but I think I need an installation CD and my HP didn't come with them.  Even still... that would reformat my drive.

If I do dual boot... and set a recording with LinuxMCE, it wouldn't record unless I was booted into LinuxMCE right?  If I set it and then switched to Windows XP it wouldn't record?
