no use vmware . you can install everything on that. I just love vmware! great to run windows programs, and great to test and os, or modifications in an os.

What he means is you take your fabulous 15 year old self onto the internet, do some searches, go to http://www.google.com/linux, maybe try to find some Linux HOWTO's (no, we will *not* tell you what and where those are), and if all that is too much trouble for you you can even do a search on this very forum.
