    Hello all ... I am currently I a running XP Pro on an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ with 2 Gigs of RAM and 750 Gigs on 3 hard drives. Could anyone please point me to a link that will tell me how to install Linux as a second operating system?

    Only if you can tell me a good way to cook a two to three pound prime rib roast so it doesn't get all dried out (I only have to feed two people).

    Oh....I really recommend Ubuntu....www.ubuntu.com. This post may help:

    My personal preference is to go ahead and install version 7.10 instead of 6.06...the post is a bit old but still good.

    I would recommend openSUSE as well. Easy to install, great hardware support, and great gui based tools (YaST and Sax) not to mention the ever increasing software repositories with the suse build system.
