Install virtual box from : Download VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization application. What does that mean? For one thing, it installs on your existing Intel or AMD-based computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. Secondly, it extends the capabilities of your existing computer so that it can run multiple operating systems (inside multiple virtual machines) at the same time. So, for example, you can run Windows and Linux on your Mac, run Windows Server 2008 on your Linux server, run Linux on your Windows PC, and so on, all alongside your existing applications. You can install and run as many virtual machines as you like -- the only practical limits are disk space and memory.

I have Acer aspire 5742 model. It has operating system of Linpus I want to remove it and install windows 7 and Linux os. Please give instructions to do that chirani


You don't have to do anything to remove it actually. If you just format the disk it will be removed (for ever though) so just install the right on it don't even have to boot in Linpus.

Making your laptop Dual boot(that is the term for having two operating systems on a computer) with windows and Linux is a little tricky though.

Basically the whole problem is that windows will wipe your linux if you are not careful and will wipe your boot partition for sure (Windows 7 might not - haven't tried it).

So All you have to do is install Windows. While partitining the disk just take enough space for it and leave enough for the windows - you can wipe the whole disk if you want to. The Linux will need from 4 - 12+ GB of installation space (maybe less if it's live cd and you won't keep files there).
After you have installed your Windows. Just install your favorite Linux distribution in the space left.
If you have any other questions mainly to the Linux installation, I'll be pleased to help you.

WINXP-_CRASH


I wonder if you ever pay attention to what you're doing; if you install a Linux Distribution, it's going to have a non-NTFS boot sector, and moving Windows' original boot sectors around is not guaranteed to work well.

If you pay attention to what you're doing, you should be installing Linux on a fresh disk using a good filesystem like ext3 or ext4 or Sun's filesystem. If you want to run WinXP rather than run applications (games, etc.) under WINE or a VM, you can use Disk Commander or such to boot to the old drive and mask the OS from each others' existence. Likewise you could install, run, etc. Fedora, Ubuntu, etc. from within a VM in WinXP; or install, run, etc. WinXP within a VM in a Linux. If you don't pay attention to what your install means for the system operation, you're going to get surprised.

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

I cannot install my lexmark Z53 Cd to my Mac. The computer says there is no memory available although I know there is. I click on "install" and it just flashes.


I use Linux (Ubuntu 8.04); I had a similar problem. If you get to the printers configuration windows, can you see the printer definition? Linux detected the printer by itself, without any installation disk.

Unix installation


Do you want unix or Linux? Since you said linux, you need to know which flavor you want. SCO, and others, look on google for the different flavors.

I have ubuntu linux and I am writing you from it now. I love it, it's very nice working with Windows.

See this link for all the downloads.
