    Suggest a disro for dual boot

    I wish to dual boot with WIN 98.. on Fujitsu lifebook 340 with 4.5 & 1.5 GB partition... Please suggest a distro.. I wish to have this on LAN with my desktop dual booted with WIN XP & Suse10.2.. and use both of them at my clinic to keep my patients database on every visit Using LINUX only..

    im pretty new to linux too, but from what ive seen, fedora, DSL (damn small linux) or gentoo would probably be good for what you want, though if you plan to do a lot of multimedia stuff, Dynebolic is the way to go.

    Check the link in my sig - this should get you going.

    If I understand your last question properly, you can network different distros together. It is usually the software that makes the connections between the computers.

    For your laptop, check out here:
    This site outlines people's past experience with Linux and Fujitsu. I couldn't find your model but it might still be worth the look.

    Best of luck.

    Personally, out of Fedora 6, Suse 10.2 and Debian Etch 4 that I have tried on my laptop, I definetly will stick to Debian - it's worked the fastest and very stable. Networking OS's together depends on the programs that you use to do that with.
