There are better filesharing apps for linux than using a windows app through wine. Personally, I prefer BitTornado and gtk-gnutella, both of which are better than anything i've used on windows.

Oh, and one more thing. Is it possible to run WinMX under wine?

WinMX currently does not run properly on Linux. I have been successful at getting the GUI to work, searching, and downloading some things, but not reliably at all.

However, LinMX is currently under development. Check it out at http://linmx.sourceforge.net

I've heard of LinMX three years ago. The site hasn't changed a bit. It never was, and most likely will never will be...

Anyway, is there anything else I need to know before starting?
And what do I install first? Windoze or FedoraCore2?

The easiest way to do it is install windoze first. That way Grub will detect it and auto-install an entry for windoze and you won't have to go back to modify the boot sequence later.

Oh yeah... Just for the record... What kind of hardware do you have?

I thought you had printed out my instructions. That makes it pretty clear that you should install windows first.

Ooh, I almost forgot... Are there any antivirus proggies for Linux?(I know that most virii are designed to attack windoze, but still, to be on the safe side...) And a good software firewall.
Thanks.
