    I am installing the mentioned software. After putting in the serial key I DO NOT get the option to click next. After some digging on the net and these forums, I've seen that this software might not be the best for switching OS's, some people are not pleased with it. I have partitioned my main drive for Linux and I am curious what people recommend I use for switching the OS's. 3rd party software or bootable disc? I am new to the 2+ OS's on one PC so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Depending on what Linux distro you have,
    you will either have the Grub or Lilo boot loader.
    (Unless they've another one that I haven't ran into.)

    Either one is preferrable to Acronis.
    Grub being first choice, if you don't have that option, Lilo will do fine.
    I tried Acronis OS selector way back when,
    and it was nothing but a pain in the ass.
    They make nice partitioning/imaging apps,
    but their loader needs to be trashed.
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll play around with your two suggestions.
