OK I sort of figured it out, I installed "Sun Virtualbox" and was able to install and SEE everything! It's in 640x480 currently I'll have to play after updates are done! It's not dual booted but at least I can test drive.

Thanks again John

windows 7 home premium, Ive actually got both Ubuntu 9.10 and mint 8 to run on VB! It runs a little slow due to sharing system resources.

My only problem now is a lack of resolutions, currently shows 800x600 & 640x480 with a "driver compatibility issue" and "need to update driver" pop up!

For some it might not mean much but for me it's a milestone! Considering a year ago I thought a kernel was corn!

Baby steps for a geek in training!
