Linux on a laptop
I've got this laptop a couple of weeks ago (specs in my sig)
Thing is, it's got 2 HDD's in a RAID setup, and I'm thinking about installing Linux (I've got FC3 and Slackware 10.1 lying around somewhere, I'm not really up for downloading a whole new distro TBH, seeing as I'm on an academic network it might upset certain people).
How hard is it to install Linux onto the D: drive in a RAID configuration (I've got Windows on C, formatted NTFS) ?
People say Linux sucks on laptops, is that true? If so, why?
And does installing Linux ruin your warranty, as some people say?
I'm not a Linux noob, I have used it before, I just don't have it here.
