When your computer restarts after the installation, you should be able to choose to boot into Linspire or MS Windows. Anyone interested just go to Youtube and type in Zorin 9 review, and watch them, then type in how to install Zorin as duel boot with Windows or just Zorin install. Read More with Zorin, then you’ll have the choice of keeping a Windows XP partition if you like, just to play it safe. have a peek here I only run one distro, so I think 32 mb for /boot is plenty for me. (That is the size I chose because that is what the Gentoo Handbook says in

your choice though. Zorin does. Partioned the drive into NTFS Windows XP Pro, shared drive, and Linspire 5.0 (using automated Linspire install disc).

It didn’t take long before I had the system looking just like my old Windows machine, complete with a galaxy background and a growing collection of icons scattered on the desktop. Thanks, cheers mac If computers are so smart, why don't they just fix themselfs?? ISO image location 3.

Wine doesn't work with a ton of windows programs, but even if it did, it's still not Windows XP. I want to know if I can dual boot XP pro and Lindows without reinstalling my winXP pro OS?
