Help me installing linux


Am trying to install Linux Fedora 11 on a computer that already has Windows XP OS on it but during installation of Linux Fedora 11 it just keeps saying a bug was found to save it and to post it on some website about the error. Any suggestions as to why is it doing that and one more question could I install Linux Fedora 11 first and then windows XP? Can I do that?

I would recommend against installing windows second as it will overwrite the boot loader and you will not be able to dual boot without reconfiguring grub. You might want to check out this article http://www.howtoforge.com/the-perfec...edora-11-gnome As per the error please post more specific details and I will be happy to help you out more.

Well, since you don't say what the 'bug' was, what webiste, or anything about your hardware, there's not alot we can do. We can't guess as to what's wrong.

And to answer your second question, no, you can't install Windows after Linux. Windows doesn't like to share, and it's a shortcoming in how Windows loads and boots.

If you describe the problem you're having, and give details, we can probably help.
