Linux on top of Windows...

I recently read about a Linux distro called Dragon Linux which installs in a folder in Windows. Do any of you know if they are other versions similiar to this that do no force you to partition your HD?

There are many such flavors of Linxu which install within teh windows structure, such as Monkey Linux, etc.

Also you can make any RedHat (7.1,7.3,8,9) iknstall within Windows.

Also, if you do not feel like partitioning your drive and just want to give linux a go, you can try Knoppix.

Knoppix is a linux distro which boots directly off a cd. U do not have to install it.

I've tried Redhat, Lindows, Lycoris and Mandrake... I still don't know which one to use.

SUSE................does it all "out - of - the - box"

Dragon hasn't been updated for quite some time.
Peanut will allow installation to a DOS filesystem.
So does Zipslack. Zipslack installs a set of useful CLI software.

to 2damncommon

thanks for the links--was usefull to me.

To BlackEcho
If you just want to use ( not learning) I agree with Suse.
If you want to learn about linux, it doesn't matter which one you try, you will change every 2 months anyway
Just my opinion
