Re: problem in installing linux
Hi... Linux is different from Win XP, you'll take a lot of time to study and make adjustment to its environment and its applications. Also passwords on Linux is case sensitive. You can download Win XP if, it is not illegal in your place, have it burned on a CD to be used for the installation... Good Luck! Hope this helps... happy Fixya! Keep us posted if you need more help.

You can install the previous version of Windows - this is Windows XP or you can install the latest version of Windows - this is Windows 7. You can install a Linux operating system such as Ubuntu or Red Hat Google search for Linux operating systems to download Linux freeware program.
If your computer does not have an operating system then you will need to purchase one. You can still buy Windows XP but with Windows 7 coming out very soon it would be wiser to pick up a copy of Vista with a free upgrade coupon to Windows 7. Or you can run a linux o/s if you a famaliar with linux. Ubuntu I believe is a free linux o/s that you can download to a flashdrive and install to your pc. Hope these tips help.
Linux XP has had several reports of problems with activation. Your best bet would be to contact their technical support. Or switch to one of the completely FREE Linux distros. Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint linux, Dream Linux, Mandriva, Knoppix. Are just a few that offer the same simple install interface and hardware support.
Linux XP is a free linux distro that charges you for pre-installing applications like "Wine" that run windows based apps. Wine itself is also free and can be installed on any linux distro.
hello. sir. i have lost sound from my lap top Compaq presario C700 after installing windows XP. kindly help me. my laptop is also showing pproblem during installation of hard drive for same driver, every time i turn on my laptop. i donot have the installation mother board for the same laptop
Did you look in the CDs you got from your pc vendor ?
Look in the documents you got with the pc for the motherboard(main board in your pc) manual, if you don't have the manual
try to locate it in one of the CDs included with the pc.
The important thing is to find out who made your motherboard and what is the model.
Once you know that, go to the manufacturer website, find the drivers for your model( for XP of course), download it and install it in your pc.
Note: when you get the drivers, SAVE it in a CD.
