    If you have a free partition, then you can install XP. Many people do that. Others just use a virtual machine and run RedHat inside XP at the same time as XP is running. You could also use the Linux version of VirtualBox to run XP inside RedHat.

    There are all kinds of possibilities.

    hi elvandil,

    what you said is exactly right but there is something like first if we install xp in laptop we cannot install linux in the second partition or first if we install linux then we cannot install windows in the second partition. so what is exactly right or nothing like that?

    Awaiting for the reply.

    Thank you for your valuable time.
