Re: unix with vista
Yes, you can have them both, install vista first and then linux, ones you have your linux working you have to configure the bootloader in linux to also include the vista so you get a screen when you start up your pc
if your distro uses lilo heres what it would look like
All you would have to do to get vista working again would be to add the vista into the bootloader, the process differs between bootloaders so I'm not going to post how todo that, consult the documentation.
One thing thought, Id recommend you have atleast 2 hard drives since linux and windows don't use the same filesystem. You would have to partition your harddrive into 3 or more parts. Windows, linux and linux swap.
More on this in the documentation of your linux.

Depends on the operating system. There are password remover and cracker programs for Windows that work on most configurations. We use a unix based one you boot from and it works well. Another method is to try to boot from safe mode and log in as administrator...provided the admin account is enabled, which it is generally not in Vista and above...though it is in XP Home but not in XP Pro.
start the computer with the Unix disk in the drive.
Choose the option to run unix without installing to the pc.....(this runs without a HDD>Itll take some time but let it install all the way, and as system is fully running..Choose "install unix " from the drop down menu.
After installation, eject the cd and set up to boot from the HDD.
Hmmm... This is a BIG question, and it has a HUGE answer. Have you ever seen Unix and Vista? I think you would immediately see the difference between the two. 1. Vista has a Graphic User interface, Unix is a command line interface. 2. Totally different systems (Filesystem, application, Kernel... whatever) 3. Age - Unix is ooold, and Vista is new (Unix dates back from the 1980's)
Well i can go on like this for days ...Google it more.
UNIX is a operating system which has only command user interface, and if the unix is installed in the system you cant install any other operating system after that ... one separate system must be allocated for the unix ...
LINUX is the graphical user interface and it supports multiple operating system ..
UNIX and LINUX are almost same, almost all commands which supports in UNIX supports in LINUX too .. with some extended features just like GUI(GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE),SECURITY,MULTI USER,MULTI TASKING,etc
COMMAND USER INTERFACE - the input is made to the computer by using commands and the output is obtained by command or by printer ...
GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE- the input is provided to the computer through the other input devices like mouse,joystick etc the input is provided either by command or by the just clicking the mouse on the particular icon ...
example for graphical user interface is windows,Macintosh etc ...
