Stupid questions from a newbie
I'm new to the forums, and completely new to the world of linux in general. I bought a netbook a couple of days ago, it came with XP but after reading around a bit online about linux I'd be interested in making the switch.
However I came about a few horror stories from people installing it on their netbooks. How the wifi wouldn't work, how the fn key stopped working and other things.
Is it really that problematic to switch to linux?
After installing linux, would I have to find a bunch of drivers for the netbook online?
Also, one final stupid question, if I regret making the switch and want to go back to XP...how would I go about doing that?
I mean I have a legal copy of XP on the netbook(I'm sick of using pirated copies, I'd like to stick to the licensed one), but to install linux I'd have to format the drive. I know there has to be an image copy of the XP disk on the netbook. Could I copy that to a USB stick before I install linux?
...ok that last part did not sound all that confusing in my head:eek:
Anyway I'd be thankful for some help.
Oh and sorry if this post is made in the wrong section of the forum, as I said I'm completely new. Be my guest to move the thread:-P
