Boy, did I speak too soon.
This has been a disaster.
I eventually had to remove XP and Linux, install and re-install XP about 5 times and constantly fiddle with my partition manager software.
Right now I got Linux running, but not XP. I can surf the web, but that’s about it. I don’t know how to open ports to use Gaim. I’m very unsure about how to install new applications, use RPM, or manage icons. I also can’t get multiple monitors working or the scroll wheel on my mouse.
Thank God I have a laptop.
