Im using windows XP but want to set up a partition for Linux. Is "partition magic" software the easiest way of doing this? I have a 160G HDD with 1024 RAM. Ill be using primarily Linux but still want to keep XP. Any tips? Is there anything I should watch out for>memory allocation for instance?
Thanks for those tips. One of the lads here at work mentioned linux Fedora to me. Is there any advantage/disadvantage of using this kind, over the ones ye suggested>functionality for instance? I want to be able to download and use the free packages Lm_sensor package, RDDTool, Collectd and RDDGraphing Front-end. Do all linux types support these? and all free source codes in general?
Tried installing ubuntu which was downloaded into my hard drive and then burning it into a DVD but guess what? When I tried to install after a bootup, the system does not recognise the DVD although when I burn the .iso it is being burned as a bootup DVD.
Question: Could it be that I need a floppy to install ubuntu? It happens to me when I have tried to install Mandriva Linux.
