    Question Please Help me with Dual boot with windows


    Hi,

    I'm novice for Linux. I'm an IT Engineering student, final year . I need Red Hat Linux (with VI editor) to be installed on my stand alone Home PC.
    Please help me out in this regard. I'm unaware of the versions also. My PC hardware configuration is Processor 850 MHz, 128 MB of SD RAM and 80 GB of Hard disk. I'm presently running MS-Windows98 and MS-Windows XP Sp2. Is it possible that I can keep these two OS and install Linux.

    Also please let me know how to get Linux.

    Thanks.

    128MB RAM is not enough for RedHat or any other major distro. Install any light-weight distro like Damn Small Linux, Puppy or ZenWalk.
    You can install as many OSes as you like. Create a free space 6-8GB for Linux and start installation. Select free space in Partitioning Section and installer will create/format partitions out of free space itself. Multiboot setup is default in all Linux distros and installer will setup that.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
