Need to get rid of Mint to put on pclinuxos. Vista dual-boot. (vista scares me).
A while back I put Linux Mint (KDE) on my boyfriend's Acer laptop because Vista kept crashing. He's been using it for a while but wants to try another distribution. (He's still mostly using the vista partition due to some compatibility/learning curve issues). I'm recommending PClinuxOS because its been so stable for me (+ it's pretty).
Anyway, I've only got experience dual-booting and changing distributions with XP. I remember installing on Vista was such a pain in the ass and the whole time I was a nervous wreck that I was going to destroy everything. (Vista would freeze while I was resizing partitions).
Can I just install over Mint relatively easily? Are there more complications I should know about with Vista? Anything special to know about Vista with PClinux? Should I just wipe Vista entirely and say, "oopsy!" and save myself the hassle?
If anyone would be kind enough to give me tips or a step-by-step guide it would be GREATLY appreciated! (I've been a total n00b for over two years...)
Thanks in advance to anyone who responds,
