Re: Installing Red Hat 9.0
a. No. But if your XP partition takes up the whole drive you might want to use another hard drive or try to resize it.

i've tried downloading the free version online..but i can't seem to burn the .iso image correctly.
i'm just going to buy it in the store
What i'm wanting to know is:
a. i have winxp and want to do a dual boot option, do I need to buy a partion program
b. Is Red Hat Linux worth the $ 40 buy?
c. How in the world do I set up the dual boot. ?
PLEASE HELP! Lots of thanks
b. No. No. No. No. RH9 is really not great at all. There are much better kinds out there. Hell, RedHat isn't even being developed anymore - it's now called Fedora, and run by the RH community instead of the RH developers. Try doing a stage3 Gentoo Linux install. http://gentoo.org - their install guide is impeccable. Use Nero Burning ROM to burn the files to CDs.
c. If you use Gentoo, it's right in the documentation step-by-step. It should be a part of most install programs, too. Basically you install a bootloader such as GRUB or LILO on the MBR, and you can choose which system to boot when you turn your computer on.
