Need some answers for a n00b.
Hello everyone, this is my first post here and I have a couple of questions before I install Linux on my box:
Ok, well over the last year i've been wanting to learn Linux. There is much to be said for a stable, secure, and free OS. But before I install a distro, I need some answers:
1.) I currently have 2 hard drives in my box. One is my windowsxp HD and the other is for mp3, movies, etc... I would like to install Linux on my the HD with the mp3's and stuff. So how do I go about partitioning the drive so I don't lose all my music and movies? And if i'm not happy with linux, could I remove that partition?
2.) If I get the partition worked out and Linux installs well, how would I boot from the second hard drive instead of my windows drive? And since my mp3s would be on the same hard disk as my distro (but different partition) how would I access those?
3.) I would need a ftp program, so what could I use for that with linux and is MozillaFirebird builds for linux any good.
Thanks for any and all help.
