I AM CLEARING AND REWORKING MY NT4 AND WAS WONDERING ABOUT A LINUX OS TO WORK ALONG WITH IT IN A PARTITION.
COULD ANYONE RECOMEND A GREAT BROTHER?
I HEARD THAT CORELS LINUX IS SUCH A PLAYER WITH NT4. ANY OTHER LINUX OS THAT MAY BE BETTER? I AM A VERY NEWBIE AT THIS POINT>

Greetings

OK, I have never worked with Corel's Linux, but I have been told that it is a nice version to learn the Linux GUI.

Other good version's to learn on are Mandrake and Red Hat. But, if you want to get more power out of your linux installation, you need to use distributions like Slackware, or Debian.

And... I am sure that another Linux fan will have a completely different point of view. Oh well... If you want, I can move this thread to the Linux forum, and you can see what their reaction is.

My best solution for you, is to buy a "Linux for Dummies" type of book, which should come with a free CD with a Linux distribution on it. That way, you get a beginner's Guide to Linux, plus a pressed bootable CD.

What I can give you, are specific instructions to installing linux as a dual boot system with NT.

If you go to www.xperts.co.za/reuel/multiboot I have specific instructions on how to dual boot your system with NT.

Hope this helps
