will i be able to dual boot?
i am ready to move to linux from windows. i have done some research, and plan to buy a new computer w/ linspire 5.0. i see that some software (dreamweaver, photoshop), would be replaced by different linux applications, which i'm interested in learning. however, until i become proficient, i need to have access to those programs for my freelancing (if necessary could use old computer).
it seems possible to dual boot linspire and win xp. but i haven't found a source that says i definately can. can anyone confirm that i could do this so i have access to my windows software until i become more proficient at linux? also, if it would be better to install both operating systems on different hard disks, can i use one of the hard disks out of my old windows pcs? if i buy a new computer w/ linspire 5.0 already installed, will this make it difficult to install xp? everything i've read sounds like you need to install xp first.
thanks ahead for your help. this looks like a great forum and i'm excited to learn linux!
