Work gave me an IBM Thinkpad T43 with Windows XP installed.

I am attempting to install FC5.  For various reasons (including it not
being so obvious that I have linux installed) I do *not* want to install
grub in the MBR.

The partitions are /dev/sda1 (XP) and /dev/sda2 (FC5).  I know how to
install grub on /dev/sda2 (by checking `configure advanced boot loader
options').  The doc says ` Your computer must have GRUB or another boot
loader installed in order to start, unless you create a separate startup
disk to boot from**'.

How do I create a separate startup disk (CD)?

If the Thinkpad has more than 512 MB memory and a 600 MHz or faster
processor use VMWare's free Player or Server. Install FC as a client
OS.  When you need to return the laptop just uninstall Player or
Server and delete the VMWare folder and files. That way you don't
screw up your employer's property.
