My friend helped me get Fedora up and running and told me that to play some games I may need to "dual boot" but to try it without that before. Well, I tried it and he told me that here would be a good place to see if someone could give me instructions as to how to set my computer up so I can dual-boot Windows or perhaps boot Windows within Fedora so that I can play games such as WoW. I have another thread trying to get my Wine+Gecko fixed, but I'm posting this so that I have answers if that doesn't work. Help would be appreciated, thank you.
Some games will run on WINE---or Crossover (the commercial version) You can get a trial version free at Codeweavers' website.
No time for more at the moment---look at the "booting link" below for an intro to dual-boot.
Brief instructions for duel booting - generic version:
In addition to the above, Ubuntu can be installed using a piece of software called Wubi. This allows it to be installed without partitioning your hard drive.
Brief instructions for running Windows within Linux:
the best way to boot win and fedora is to buy a second hard drive rather than shrinking a working fedora( most likely setup on the default LVM)
install the new drive as the FIRST drive .Unplug OR be VERY,VERY careful with the windows install ( by DEFAULT it will reformat your linux drive to windows )
" We are Microsoft resistance is futile , your own...will be add to ...".
There is , on xp sp2, a check box you need to UNCHECK it so windows will only install on the first drive .
then you need to decide how to dual boot
1) use grub to boot both
2) use the windows boot loader to boot win and fedora
in this situation 2 is the easiest
