    Installing, partitions and dual boot with Solaris 9 x86 and XP

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum. I'm running Windows XP Pro. I want to have Windows XP and Solaris 9 x86 as a dual boot but never ever installed it and never made Solaris partitions before actually i never used any type of Unix before. Can someone walk me through this?? I have it on 3 CD's. This is what i did. I put CD 1 in my DVD drive and restart.

    I made it up to run fdisk.

    1.) Use the default layout
    2.) Run fdisk to manually edit the disk
    I choose number 2.

    Here is the next options:

    1.) Create a partition
    2.) Specify the active partition
    3.) Delete a partition
    4.) Exit (Update disk configuration and exit)
    5.) Cancel (Exit without updating disk configuration)

    Here is the next options and i don't know what to do here:

    Select the partition type to create:
    1= Solaris
    2= Unix
    3=Pcixos
    4= Other
    5= DOS12
    6= DOS16
    7= DOSEXT
    8=DOSbig
    9=DOS16LBA
    A=x86 Boot
    B=Diagnostic
    C=FAT32
    D=FAT32LBA
    E=DOSEXTLBA

    I'm totally lost on this. Please reply back as soon as possible. Thanx guys.
