Hi all. Two questions here.

Can anyone suggest a good website that shows how to install and run both windows and Linux O/S.

Can anyone suggest good free partitioning software for use an XP system.

Thanks people :)

Thanks mate.

Having looked into it a wee bit now I reckon i may go for Knoppix, which apparently runs from CD rather than install, until i get used to it(Linux). Have you used or do you know anything about this? Do you reckon its a good way to go about it?

Thanks for getting back to me btw.

Sorry haven't played with linux ,

There are a lot of forums on the net just "google" for them.

Any of the "Live" CD's are a good idea for introducing Linux to the newcomer.

As for partitioning,most modern distros will allow you to basicaly point&click to install alongside your present OS.The 1st job once a distro is installed is digging around in linux for the relevant bit to swap the listed OS's around,as linux nearly always sets itself as 1st on the list for booting.
