Why not keep that partition for playing games? I guess you could uninstall all the stuff you don't need anymore and then shrink the Windows partition to a smaller size, just enough you can install and run the games you want? You could then install Linux on a separate partition and "dual boot" between the two.civint wrote:will I be able to run my existing "real" version of xp from how it is installed anyway?
Easy to forget the beginning of a threadto save having to reboot every time I want to run a wndows program..ie games....and the like..
Yes, but then he'd need a more powerful machine with plenty of RAM (1 GB minimum) so it can handle Linux + emulation of Windows API's + the games. And maybe a Cedega subscription wouldn't be bad. If all this is not possible then a dual-boot is the best option ...Husse wrote:Totally agree with scorp - but civint posted becauseEasy to forget the beginning of a threadto save having to reboot every time I want to run a wndows program..ie games....and the like..
