excelent, any questions that you may have, please post them, we love a newcomer to linux, but many of us love a newcomer to gentoo linux even more, and we dont want to lose you to a gimassively intimidating install process. (even if it really isnt all that complicated once you look at it)

most forums hate n00bies saying there annoying
well, what do u expect from windows users
im gona do most of this myself but i got a problem
im not sure at all about the hard drive setup, will it only format the linux partion or format the entire drive? because i have alot of files on windows that i really need (even tho the OS is pants)
also, i read about Wine, dose that basicly let linux use windows .exe and .dll files? if so that would be useful
EDIT: is the reason u like n00bs cos they ask easy questions u can answer that make u look smart? :P
EDIT2: actually, i just thought
would it be easier for me to partion the hard drive and then install? because then i maby could just install without having to deal with the hard drive stuff, and what (prefrebly in windows as its the only 1 that fully works dispite the errors) program should i use to do it?
and how can i setup my wireless card?
Belkin told me to do this:
but im a total linux n00b and that sounds like double dutch

Dont let linux touch ntfs in write mode, it will read it fine, but writing is bad news waiting to happen, linux tends to overwrite parts of otherfiles in ntfs, since its closed source, the linux community is forced to reverse engeneer the filesystem, whitch is slow work. use for the linux partitions and extendend filesystem (like ext2 or ext3) simply because they are better filesystmes. you can do the partitioning in any program you wish, you just have to format all the drives in linux and mount them so they may be used correctly, there are lots of threads on dual booting, read a few of those and make a plan based on your needs and wants. please post the results of fdisk, p.
