thnx a ton for helping me
so,i got a copy of ubuntu,ran the live cd....whoa...i expected a win95 like os...but wow
it is awesome.
i love it,
but i need some guidance here,
machine3(win) and so on,
ive heard that viruses generally do not target linux machines...
but since there are windows machines on the lan,im worried
my priority is to keep one machine for net n keep the other windows machines virus free.
is it safe to connect machine1 to the lan ?
will there be a chance of an infection(to the other machines)?
B) since my linux box will be rendered useless if it just has linux,
im contemplating to dual boot.so i can still run my other windows related tasks.
i wont be connecting online from the windows os.
my question is can a virus which typically infects a windows installation,be able to infect it when im connected to internet from linux ?
i know i sound a little paranoid now...but I REALLY GOT SCREWED MAN,im not taking chances again.
