I'm currently using Windows Vista 32-bit on a RAID 1 array; I'm using the RAID provided by my motherboard so it's fakeRAID. Anyway, I'd like to do some C development under Linux but I'm not exactly sure how to go about installing it on a software RAID 1 array without messing up Windows. I'm not sure which Linux distro I'm going to install, so I'm hoping that information isn't important. Would I just resize my Windows partition and put Linux on the newly created partition?
Thanks for the help.
Edit: So, do I have to worry about where Linux will put its bootloader or will it manage that on its own?
Edit2: Oops, I didn't mean software RAID, I meant fakeRAID.
