It all depends.. it is a resource hog and you would want a substantial amount of RAM to run more smoothly. It does the job done but if you want windows apps in Linux you might want to look into Wine or maybe Win4Lin ( which is like vmWare but smaller and more stable from what I have seen. )

I have 384 of RAM on a PII 400, so I guess I should be fine.

Now since I have that cleared up, I would like to know the little principle of how it works.

I.E. My PC is duel-booting but Linux (RedHat 7) is on a different HD from my Win98SE.

Does it work like that? or should I say, while it work?

Thanks again

P.S. I've only been using Linux for the past 3 weeks(off and on tho) but I'm getting the hang of it.
