Uninstall Linux Reinstall WinXP
Ok, linux is cool and all but I need to be able to use my computer ASAP for school. So I need windows working. How would I reinstall Windows if SuSe is set to boot from floppy and when I put in the windows cd it says "Boot failed". I tried making a dos boot disk, then formatting mbr but it still says "Boot Failed". I just need to get windows reinstalled and get on my way. Then Ill try and get linux working again later on.
Linux not for an average joe
I have to say linux is really not for an average pc user. With this being said, here are somethings why people should choose linux:
1. Wanting to learn more about computers (experienced users)
2. For developing purposes
3. Detests Windows OS
Well, the last one is a joke but I guess some people actually might see that as a reason.
I primarily chose to use linux because I was a cs major. Most people at school didn't really care about it but I noticed that that this could be an advantage when I started working(well, I'm unemployeed so I guess that doesn't say much). But the real purpose of me getting linux was to learn Unix at home. Back then, cable modem was not an option so connecting to the school's Unix machine was rather uncomfortable.
If you do not need to program, I suggest that you stick to Windows. I dual boot with Windows2000 and honestly, I spend more time in Windows than linux when I need to use the pc for simple uses.
