Hello,
Thank you for all the information and links on linux. I was surprise about
the number of different versions on Lunix there are to anyone.
I apologize for asking about Aircrack, since it is again LQ Rules.
Can you boot to a Linux or Windows XP Pro on the same computer??
I think I need to install a Linux version to get some experience
before using Command line Linux.

Hello,

There are indeed a lot of different distributions of Linux available. It all comes down to choices, the ones you make considering what you like/need/want to do with Linux.Yes you can dual boot Windows and Linux from the same computer, that's called a dual boot system. There are lots of howto guides available on the internet on how to proceed but basically you'll just have to keep in mind that the easiest way is to install Windows first and then Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric

That is easy.

If you do a forum search for "dual boot" you'll see lots of discussion of that topic.

But you don't really need to look at such discussion. If you have XP installed either using less than the entire disk initially or shrunk later to leave unpartitioned space, then install almost any Linux distribution, the Linux installer will notice XP already there and automatically set up the dual boot for you.

If you already have XP installed and it uses the entire disk, it is best to use tools within XP to defragment XP's partition, then use a GUI partitioning tool on a Linux liveCD to shrink that NTFS partition.

Hello,
I received several e-mails from LQ and they offer free guides
for linux products, Like "Getting Started with Ubuntu 10.10" free guide.
Where and how do I obtain this guide??
Thank you, DEL-Linux.

That being said though - I guess I should stop all together then, if stuff like this is being said. It happens a lot, and to my knowledge, I am doing the right thing by helping people out on the side with the issues that go against the rules. So a poll question for Eric and DEL-Linux - Should I keep offering my assistance or not?

Thanks,

Josh
Hello Josh.
Yes, some more help would be good.
what do you require from me?
