This might be of topic but i cant post anything in Frequently Asked Question's, So here it go's.
I want to know if there is a way to dual boot Windows 7 on a hard drive that has a Gentoo already installed, Anyone?.
Should i leave space on HDD when making the ROOT Partition, or am i better of Installing Window's 7 first cutting disk space and then install Gentoo?..
if so how would i go about doing either or, what do you recommend. and how should i do it!
Your Help and Knowledge Is Greatly Appreciated
Thank You!

I would install Windows 7 first (you can already reserve some space for other OS when partitioning) and then Gentoo.

Yes, you can install windows on the same HDD where gentoo is installed if you have enough free space. Installing windows may remove grub (or lilo) from MBR but you can install grub again from a live CD or a live USB.
