I recommend to make a seperate NTFS (or FAT) partition on your harddisk for Mint4Win to avoid fragmenting of the Mint system.

Windows 7 versions that can open ISO files:
Open ('mount') the ISO and run mint4win.exe.

Vista and before:
Burn the Linux Mint KDE ISO file to a DVD, or place it on a USB pendrive.

To place it on a USB stick: download Universal USB Installer from www.pendrivelinux.com.
As it does not support Mint 10 KDE by default, rename the file: replace kde with gnome. KDE still works, but Pendrivelinux thinks that you have gnome and runs fine.

After you have put it on DVD or USB, put the disc or stick into the computer that you want to use. Mint4Win will open automatically, if it does not, browse to the file mint4win.exe that has appeared on the disc/stick and open it.

It is included with Julia Gnome, I think KDE will also have it.

Edit: it is not in the KDE ISO file. Maybe you can just copy the mint4win.exe file from the Gnome ISO, I have not tested this.

Tested it on the day Julia KDE was release and can confirm it doesnt work.. :( so i install Julia Main using mint4win and install KDE thru package manager although it requires some extra works to make it just like Mint.
