RE: Dual Boot and System Restore Data Deletion
Thanks Paul - subsequent to my post I came across info which suggested that a
3rd party boot manager might offer the best solution. On further reflection
however I've decided that it's perhaps time to sever the XP umbilical cord -
Vista seems to be capable of running all the apps and hardware I have, and
the one game it wont run, I'll simply play off a spare machine.
