Re: linux on evo 800v

Hi,
Start by installing XP,
During this install process, you can change in your target the size (create 2 partition instead of 1 big). It should work also with recovery CD...
Once XP is installed, then boot from Linux CD, and follow instruction to format the second partition and so on...
I never did it with XP, but it works with 2K
