Ok heres my setup.
AMD K6, 500MHZ, 512MB ram.
On the 10 gig i am going to install Mandrake 9.0. The 6gig is filled with my windows backups (ie all my files music all of it) in NTFS. Is there a program to let me access and use all those files in linux or do i have to download all linux versions of my programs (ie aim, Dev C++, etc).
Also, can i access word docs and such in linux? I dont even know how to mount drives or access files, thats why i am setting up the second pc to learn.
