Reinstall XP on a Dual-boot with Ubuntu?
I have been using a dual-boot system on my laptop for sometime now.
I've mostly misgrated to Ubuntu 6.06, but once in a while I have to go
back to XP for some things. It looks like I may need to re-install XP
due to an svchost error that I can't get rid of (still working on it
though), has anyone successfully reinstalled Windows XP and kept their
linux partition working? Everything I've read and how I've always done
it is install Windows THEN linux. But will re-installing windows wipe
grub away and lock me out of my linux partition?
