I'm trying to run my computer with Windows XP Professional. Currently, it crashes more than a bumper car does. My question is...would it be possible to make a dual boot (until I'm confident enough with linux to wipe Windows off my system) PC without getting a 2nd HD or partitioning? I'm currently running:
AMD Athlon X2 3800+ dual core (with hypertransport)
1GB (2x512MB) PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory RAM
250 SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 8M Cache 7200RPM HD
NVIDIA Geforce 7300 LE 256MB 16X PCI EXPRESS video card
Intel Pro Gigabite 10/100/1000 Network Card
Creative Labs SB AUDIGY 4 SE sound card
I would like the system to play games when I'm done the conversion. I'm a total newb to Linux and have only read up on Fedora Core Linux. I'm open to other distros and any relevant info (books, forums, tutorials, etc.) would be greatly appreciated.
