An Easier Way To Install Linux On A Machine Containing Another OS?
I am a newbie so please be nice!
I've been thinking recently...
If a PC is running another operating system (I'm thinking of a Windows machine) is there any way Linux could be installed onto that machine without the need for repartitioning?
More specifically I'm thinking... Could Linux create a (large!) file on that machine therefore reserving part of the disk for its own use and then be installed to, and run from that part of the disk?
I know we already have plenty of "live" distributions and distributions that are pretty good at repartitioning disks but wouldn't this be even better?
No repartitioning and a complete doddle to remove if you don't like it...
I'm sure there are lots of reasons why this might be difficult or problematic but is it *possible*?
