Hey everyone. I really want to try Linux on my computer. I'm
currently running Win2K, but am really thinking of making the switch.
I've got a few questions though.
First, I currently am running a 32gigabyte hard drive, as one large
partition. I also own a 8 gig drive that I am not using. I have a
great deal many files on the large hard drive (i've converted my cd
collection to mp3 format) and I really don't want to back it all up if
it is avoidable at all.
Now, I was browsing around on the Internet and found a Linux version
called PhatLinux which claims to be able to install nicely on a
Windows system. This sounds good to me, as I am really worried about
losing my files by partitioning (i've had some bad luck with that).
Should I try PhatLinux out?
A person I know from work has recommended that I install RedHat on the
second hard drive, but I can't find the jumper settings for that drive
anywhere so I may be unable to use it.
For now, I really just want to try Linux out. I've never used it
before, and I want to see what it is like before I go ahead and take
the plunge from windows all the way into a new OS. What would you
Thanks very much.
