Well; I aquired the Linux format DVD (from a friend), with Ubuntu 9.04 and Mandriva 2009.1 as well as quite a few applications on the DVD (all applications are in tgz format though).
I decided after a day or so, seeing as I have a disk image of my Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex, I would do an upgrade. I have nothing to lose,time on my hands, and I'm interested to see what happens, as I have quite a lot of programs on this computer.
on an older computer I installed openSUSE 11.0 in a LVM partiton, just to try it, with GRUB on a different ext2 partition.
It worked fine until I installed fedora 10 in another partition which I resized with qtparted.
I also changed slightly the LVM partition with qtparted, using the little empty space between the tree chunks (swap, home, root).
Now I cannot boot opensuse anymore!
I have learned how to access the LVM partition, thanks to...
This forum is here to help and aid people with Linux questions not discourage them from wanting to learn it and use it.
Linux is so hard to understand and to switch to because Linux users dont want to help with the transitioning of windows users. They like to think they are a select few who understand the inner working of the computer world.

Ubuntu Versions are great to try for conversion from windows to Linux; Debian based distros are really awesome. I suggest something that is well documented, try their live CD's first before install to see what you like.
