Start here.

Don't get confused on boot loaders, boot managers and MBR's.

They really have nothing to do with file systems as such.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I haven't used dual boot in a long time but if I remember correctly, Windows always wanted/had to be installed first.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.
