- When installing Linux as the second operating system, there are several partitioning options available to you. Those options are best illustrated with those presented by Anaconda, the Fedora-developed installation program.
For new users, the third and fourth options – Shrink Current System and Use Free Space, will allow the installer to automatically create the partitions needed to install Linux on the hard drive. If you want to create a set of partitions different from the default created by the installer, you’ll have to select the last option – Create Custom Layout.
An example of how to dual-boot between two Linux distributions is available here. The same method may be used to dual-boot between any Linux or BSD distribution and any version of Windows.
