Have you tried QCAD? Its not 3D but gets the job done just as well as AutoCAD. I am also trained on AutoCAD.

As for what runs on windows?

Ditched it all about a year ago.

I still need windows for games, Adobe CS Suite, Poser, Newsbin, Thumbs Plus, Bryce, 3D Studio Max, and itunes.

itunes I would have no problems dumping with something that would work with my ipod in Linux, I hate itunes. As for the rest, no decent equivilent in Linux with the exception of GIMP but I'll still take Photoshop any day.

I use Windows for playing Quake 3 (even though I could run that on Linux) and other games that won't run on Linux. That's about it really. I can do pretty much everything else I need to on Linux.

---Solved. It was not debian fault, neither lexmark fault; but mine. Configured correctly under CUPS, Lexmark Z11 runs smoothly now under Debian GNU Linux.

Not to my knowledge, since it is a frontend and uses cdrecord as actual burning software ... just have a look there: http://cdrecord.berlios.de/old/private/cdrecord.html.

On my computer right now, I only have Windows 2000 installed. I'm planning to install Mandriva or Ubuntu, and have it duel booting with windows 2000.

I'll still need windows to run Midisoft Studio 4.0, and some other music related programs. The last time I tried Mandriva (a few months ago, with my old computer) Rosegarden wouldn't make any sound, no matter what I did. So I'll need to keep windows for composing music.
Also, I play some games, so I need windows for that too. Linux is great for everything else.
