My Gentoo AMD64 machine is the only machine in the house with a
video card capable of running a Windows game my teenage kid got for
his birthday. I checked Cedega and unfortunately they don't support it
yet. This has raised the spectre of possibly adding Windows to this
machine so that he can play the game.
The machine has some disk space but it's at the end of the hard
drive. I've not done a Windows install after running Gentoo ever. I
used to add Gentoo to Windows boxes but haven't done it in a long
time. What are the issues?
I assume that the Windows install would wipe out grub. Would I just
reinstall grub from a Gentoo install CD to get it back and then modify
my grub config file to set up the dual boot? Any grub/Windows issues
having Windows at the end of the drive sitting in an extended
What other problems am I likely to have, assuming Windows doesn't
completely wipe the drive and leave me in a world of pain?
