I’m currently a Windows XP Pro user,
and i want to try something new,
i don’t want to go completely away from XP
Just when i’m bored i want to use Linux,
I don’t even know a slights thing about
I have a pc with 128mb of ram, and an 2.2ghz processor
Ya i know its not the greatest thing but i live with it.
Also something that fits into a cd
or i could order one for free
I cannot boot into Windows, so I was just going to reformat and reinstall, but I can boot into Knoppix (Linux) from a live CD, so is there any kind of application or method I can use to retreive the product key to reinstall Windows?

I would like to give this a try, I kind of like Ubuntu after using the live cd.
Whats the best way to do this…I want to keep XP and Ubuntu/Linux on the same machine.
Here’s what I have
2 hard drives
1 30gb with XP on it
1 150gb just with file storage on it
How do I do this, just start up the ‘install’ icon from the live CD? Do I need to do anything special? Should I put linux on the 150gb drive that has no OS on it currently?
How do I get the computer to let me choose Linux or XP upon start up? Can this even be done?
Thanks in advance for your help, and feel free to post links to help files on this if you have them!
