Re: having 2 os'
First of all, try not to double post, use the edit button :P
Secondly, I run ubuntu on my computer it's a 64bit Version of linux that runs really well in my opinion... But I do need to use it more oftin :P
But when I was installing it, I "resized" my main hardrive from 200gigs to 150gigs, which automaticly created a 50gig partition which I than installed my Linux on. Now as for double booting, it's of course friendly with that, when it installs it detected windows and installed a os selector thingy for when my computer boots :P So yeah, if you have a amd64 or better such as a X2 get ubuntu it's a great version of linux. If you don't, it's really just personal prefrence.
But good luck on that, if you need any help your welcome to pm me.
