A linux instalation must be done in a separate partition, it uses a diferent filesystem. Linux isnīt really a win32 aplication, you know http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif There is something like you described: itīs called winlinux 2000, but I canīt really give u a link... do a search...

That is not the only one, there is corel Linux, PhatLinux, if you go to any linux download website they will list lots of versions that are able to be installed and ran on a linux partition, a semi complete list can be found here: www.canadacomputes.com/cc/section/pub/story/1,1101,2678,00.html (http://www.canadacomputes.com/cc/section/pub/story/1,1101,2678,00.html)

hope it helps
well, bye

I really don't recommend installing Linux on a windows partition. I don't know if Windows will handle it okay. I would use Partition Magic, or something else, and make separate partitions.

MSI-6167 w/ Athlon 500@750 (thx Greebe!), 128MB Crucial PC133, G400MAX,SBLive!-MP3,Pioneer 10x DVD, Phillips CD-R, a hard drive or two, and a Sony 420GS. Running RH6.1, and Win98 (when I have to).
