    Hi:

    I have a PowerBook with MacOS X 10.4 [Tiger] installed in it and recently bought the thing. I am interested in partitioning this hard disk so that in the 1st part I can run Tiger and the other part I can run Windows XP. DOes anyone know how I can do that.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Vyom

    Duff-Man says...the only way you are going to run XP (or any other flavour of Windoze) on your Powerbook is to buy VirtualPC from Microsoft (or get it as part of Office 2004 Mac Pro edition)....and in that case there is no need to partition as it runs as an application under Mac OS X.....oh yeah!

    Well I was thinking more about partitioning the disk rather than running windows right away

    Duff-Man says....if you just want to know about basic partitioning, then try searching the forums using the word "partition" or "partitioning" as it has been asked/answered many times.....oh yeah!

    I'm still not sure why you want to partition the drive for use with Windows? On a laptop you have no real advantage to partitioning your drive... unless you want to boot into Linux.
