Default CentOS + XP

How would I go about dual booting these two?

CentOS has it's own dual boot utility/program right?

So I should just be able to burn the iso or whatever from their website and boot from CD, and it should give me a dual boot option?

I have Acronis btw, for those of you who know of it.

Its uses GRUB (the bootloader) AFAIK so it should just be a case of installing XP, then installing centOS on another partition and letting GRUB do the rest

if it has grub (or some other decent boot loader) then it's as simple as that. It should have one, but in case it doesn't you can always install grub separately.

Last time I installed CentOS it didn't recognize XP automatically in GRUB's menu.lst -- It might do that now, but if not add it as a regular entry plus the chainloader +1 option
