    Over a year ago I experimented with a Linux distro inside of a virtual machine (Virtual Box) on my FD-ISR protected system. Then I purchased a new pc and forgot all about Linux. I'd like to start experimenting with Linux again but this time instead of installing it inside of a VM, I would like to install it directly in a dual boot configuration.

    Have many of you here used FD-ISR in a dual-boot configuration? If so, have you had any problems recovering your Windows partition using FD-ISR? Have all of the wondrous features of FD continued to work for you? This would be the "original-classic" FD-ISR that I would be using on my original Windows partition and this is on a Windows XP Pro 32-bit system.

    If I have not given you enough information for an intelligent answer, let me know, thank you.

    I use FD-ISR and linux all the time.
    Since FD-ISR does not touch the mbr it does not conflict with the bootmanagers, and all its features will continue to work fine.
