Hello, I want to dual boot Windows XP Pro and Debian 3.0 off of the same hard drive. Can someone point me to a good instruction page. Thanks a lot.

I've not used debain .. but most of your upper class distros will reconize your windows installation and put an entry for selection in lilo/grub for you automatically.. only rule of thumb i know of for sure is INSTALL WINDOWS FIRST!!.. then install your linux.. cause if you do it the other way around .. microsoft acts like a virus and will wipe out your boot entry for it in MBR
