Cool Just a couple of questions


Right I'll start of with a bit of background, I used to be a seriously bad druggie/criminal (doesnt mean anything, let me explain) I have a mental disorder called pscitzophrenia (or however its spelt) and I only started using linux 3 days ago, Since then I have installed Redhat 3 times, found it easy had no problems with duel boot with windose xp, Now i ask myself are you lot asleep when u try to install it because I have also install a working version of Gentoo from stage 2 which is a bit harder because you have to compile a few bits urself, So wake up and read instructions it really helps trust me!! But this is where i will show my newbie colors, I am wondering if there is any way of running linux through windows, like u can if you got a shell, load putty enter Ip etc??
Prolly sounds real dumb but hey u dont know unless u ask!
Cheers
RM

Hi!

I think Cygwin could be what you want. Cygwin emulates a Linux environment under Windows. Check it out at http://www.cygwin.com/

Installation for some is quite a pig apparently, while for others (myself included) it's a breeze. Probably to do with your hardware, sounds like you've been fortunate. If you installed Gentoo though that's pretty impressive so hats off to you there. Credit where it's due.
