Default Dual booting

Just finally got my computer to dual boot linux and xp.

Only thing is, linux is kind of confusing!
I need to learn all that stuff you need to put in the terminal and what not.

Lol. Yeah. I remember messing with Linux back when I lived in Brasil. I was about 11. It was very fun. There was this one game, where'd you'd race with a penguin. I can never remember the name!

For show bro. Hook me up! Where do I get this? I'm going to google immediately.

edit: oh man...that ain't the game. The game I was talking about was one where you were a penguin and you'd slide down a mountain and try to get fastest time. I played it with my dad all the time.
