Two question regarding installation..
hey everyone, I'm currently using Win Xp and am having a major issue with a virus. I told a friend I was thinking of reinstalling windows, but he suggested Linux. He made me a disk with Linux on it but the problem is is that the virus has locked everything up so I can't access my D drive and the cd won't start automatically. I'm also unable to run most downloads...
my questions are:
Can I safely delete the partitions that Win XP is on and install Linux on after that?
Is there a way (if I can make it work) that I could download Linux from the site and run it right off my computer without first putting it to a thumb drive or cd?
