>>Yeah; if its so good it should install just like Windows
Its easier to install then windows.
Don't format the hd with partition magic just give it enough space to install (4GB should be plenty but i recommend more).
The Linspire cd should do the rest.
btw, no matter what you hear or read on the linspire site or linspire forums or from anyone. DO NOT RUN AS ROOT
Create a user account straight away, give them sudo priv's and NEVER login as Root ever again.
I cannot stress that enough, u might as well be using windows. It'd be almost as secure as using linux with root account.
