I have an old compaq machine that I don't really use anymore. I want to install linux on it to see how I like it.
I am looking preferably for a free downloadable version. Any suggestions?
The compaq does not have internet access though. Any way I could put linux on a CD or USB flash drive, then transfer it onto the compaq?
The compaq currently has lots of applications installed, as well as Windows ME. It has 2 harddrives. Best solution is for one harddrive to have windows and the other to have linux, and to be able to change boot order to boot either. Can anyone tell me how to do that? (If possible)
If that isn't possible, how would I go about this? Should I just reformat both hard drives (I have nothing important on them) and then install linux fresh? If so, how would I do that?
Any other suggestions welcome.
Any thing else I need to consider? (Or info I need to provide?)
