Anyone here running Ubuntu? I am thinking about doing a dual boot with XP. Any options? Things I need to know when installing?

To dual boot is a bit tricky depending what program you use.

I wasnt please with my brief experience with Ubuntu, but I honestly didnt spend much time with it.

My fav is Mepis; easy, straightforward, and you can boot off the cd and not install it.

I'm dual booting XP and Ubuntu right now. Just install XP first, and leave some unpartitioned space for Ubuntu. Then just make a swap and an EXT3 partition for Ubuntu when you install, and that's it. I have had no issues at all.

Im tri-booting my iMac... OS X, XP, Ubuntu. Ubuntu is a PITA to get into because of my setup, so I rarely use it.

Those can be tricky.

I have a Radeon x1600, and the ATI drivers and Catalyst Control Center works perfectly for me. I haven't been able to get my TV tuner to work, though.

I couldn't do that. A lot of the software I use is Win2000/XP only. Also, since I'm still a Linux n00b, I like to have the option of using WinXP if worse comes to worse.

However, there's always Wine for some applications, and you can even emulate WinXP from within Ubuntu.

Yeah, I will have to look into Win32 emulation more. The only thing I'm doing is using ndiswrapper for the wireless driver on my laptop.

I searched the Netgear site, but I couldn't find anything. I think it's a WG511 or something like that. It's a PCMCIA wireless networking card.

I also had to use ndiswrapper for my USB wireless adapter at home. It's a Netgear MA111.

if you got the CPU/Memory Power..
just do Virtual Machines.

Xen/VirtualPC/VMware/Parallels

Less headaches... you don't like the OS.. just kill it.. install again.

serious if you want to learn Linux..
learn to install a source distro linux such as Gentoo, Stage 1
(it going to take some time to install since everything is compiled from scratch. everything)

use Fedora/Ubuntu, as a way to quickly install a distro and learn to setup such service iptables/apache/mysql/X/sendmail/php/NIS/nfs/samba/ldap/bind/etc

Do on a virtual machine so if you screw up.. you just delete the virtual machine and start over.

I am going to use my little brothers old computer that he doesnt use anymore and doesnt care about. That way if I fuck something up it wont be that big of a deal. I just just reformat everything and start all over.
