Re: Windows or Linux?

Yes, If you run linux from the CD you will not disturb Windoze at all. Of course Windoze will not be running at this time.

Re: Windows or Linux?

Yes, you try it from the disk. It does not even touch the hard drive. You will notice superior graphics, screensavers,desktop and icons.

Re: Windows or Linux?

Both the Puppy and the Ubuntu. I will try the Puppy first. I will need your guide on installing it though,because I cannot find a tutorial which says anyrhing about how I can keep Windows next to Linux. I will also need help deinstalling Puppy,because I will do it whether I like it or not,cause if I do,I will install Ubuntu.

Re: Windows or Linux?

Hi;

You do not have to install them. You try them from the CD or DVD you burn them on. They are iso files meaning they are bootable.

Re: Windows or Linux?

So,do you need to have the CD inside the whole you are using Linux,or just while booting?

Re: Windows or Linux?

It loads the CD into available ram and I think a file. You should be able to remove it. You need a burner that burns iso files.

Re: Windows or Linux?

The last puppy I burned and ran was puppy 4.21. That was a long time ago. You should have no problem with the newest one. Tell me when it is burned.

Basically you just put the CD into the bay and restart your machine.

Re: Windows or Linux?

Yup. Tried Puupy and liked it. I burned the Ubuntu ISOto a CD and it was tight. The file is 701MB and the CD holds 700MB. I don't know if that will cause problems in booting. I will try botting Linux tomorrow. I have turned a 5 hours' into a three days' work.

Re: Windows or Linux?

Was there any error message when you burned Ubuntu? If not everything will work fine. Puppy uses KDE and Ubuntu uses Gnome so there will be some differences.

Re: Windows or Linux?

No error  message. I tried booting it right away,but for some strange reasons, my laptop didn't show me the BIOS screen. I will investigate tomorrow.

What are KDE and Gnome?

Re: Windows or Linux?

They are like front ends for Linux. Each one handles the desktop, icons, screensavers in a different way. They also use different programs. I prefer Gnome.

Does Gnome come with Mozilla?

No, Mozilla comes with Gnome. Gnome handles the software that comes with the linux distribution.
