    How to install DSL Linux on a Desktop PC

    If you don't feel comfortable creating partitions from the command line, you can use the Parted Magic LiveCD to make it easier for you. It runs directly from the liveCD and is about as easy as it gets when it comes to partitioning chores.

    Have fun with your new system.
