I got my RAM-stick to today - looking forward to boosting the computer with some much needed memory!
I got the extra HDD in place and the computer detected it by itself. Couldn't have been much easier. Thanks for the help with that!
Nope I have a triple boot system right now with XP Pro, WIn 7 and Linux..
So it is possible! I know I maybe don't have that much space to play around with but it would be interesting to try and explore Linux a bit. Maybe I could run it from a cd or a flashdrive, but I think I would rather have it installed.
I keep my data all on one drive and my programs on the OS drives.
What kind of data do you recommend stashing a bit away? I usually only have documents and some of my ripped cd's stashed away. Working with the little space I've been used to has meant I usually put documents and maybe some saved stuff from games on a cd every now and then.
Is the Grub a way of selecting which OS to boot to on start-up?
I was planning to use the extra HDD with 40GB to stash ripped cd's and backup my documents and savegames there, until putting them on cd's. I'm contemplating how and if to partition the 80GB HDD. I've heard partitions can help making things running quicker, but I don't know if that's and issue with 80GB?
Maybe a partition for games or just put that on the main drive - along with Windows. Maybe a partition for Linux - how much space would that take? I sometime exchange skateboarding clips with some friends abroad which calls for some downloads - therefore I was thinking about a "sandbox-partition" to keep downloads isolated from download to cd.
