Windows 95, 98 and Nt work fine with Linux. My desktop machine has Windows 95OSR2 setup as a dual boot, and my nerw laptop has Windows98SE. Both have SuSE 6.4 Linux. Linux comes with a DOS utility to repartition the hard disk, but I very strongly recommend Partition Magic 5.0. Linux does not take that much space, but once you add GNOME and KDE, you need some space. There are also tools like Win4Lin and VMWare that you can use to run Windows concurrently with Linux. My personal preference for first time Linux users is Mandrake, which has a very easy install. SuSE is a very comlete distribution that includes just about everything including some commercial software. Red Hat is also excellent. I would not recommend any other distribution. Also, most distributions come with the Apache web server. Brian Bay wrote: > Hi Folks, > > I am planning to install Red Hat Linux on my Windows machine.
