Hi All. 

I have a dual boot with Xandros (bought this instead of VL because of WPA wifi working out of the box) and winXP.

I fancy trying VL again because I liked the speed. And I fancy playing around a bit.

Can you tell me what I have to do prior to installation so I don't muck up my system?

IE do I need to partition again or can I run xandros and VL off the same partition?

No, you can't run two distros in the same partition, but they can use the same swap partition. So to do what you want you will have to create at least one more partition big enough for VL, either by shrinking an existing partition or by using free space if you have it.
