Installing Linux again?


Hey guys. As a result of a PC upgrade, I now have a 500 GB HDD that is completely blank. Nothing on it. It just sits idly in my HDD tray (plugged in an active, though) so I thought I should make something of it.

I was thinking I either install Linux on it, or use it as a place to store virtual machine drives.

Suggestions?

That's a pretty vague request there... do whatever you want with it.

I had this situation. It became a door stop. In retrospect, I probably could have found a better use for it.

I would use it as a VM server. That way you can experiment and test stuff before applying changes to a production machines.
