Yep, thats pretty easy. Local Computer Shop? That would probably be the best idea - but otherwise? I don't know any Internet ones, don't use any.

yes just install windows first then linux will give you the option to add it and leave the other operating system in tact.
then when you reboot you will be able to select either operating system.

I think this statement is uncalled for

One of the purpose of forums is to help one another. Even moderators are entitled to ask help from the regular members

Finally, remember that membership in forums is a privilege not a right.

Chill

Hi,In case you havn't noticed the HD guys are eliminateing size choices.
Stores seem to not give you a variety.Ony 80gb and up or even 120.
You might have to go to Flee Markets.That Flea,but you might have to flee 40.
