    Yeah I&#39;m guessing thats it, because his question is very unclear. And that is a very common question that people ask.

    WinLinux runs on windows OS, but all the other boot as its own OS. Just put the CD in and install.

    They are reffering to wine emulators and no they cant run every windows program under wine. There is a list of what is know to run under wine without ANY problems or system crashes. But to me, wine sucks, if you want to run windows then get another box.

    To some people thats an option. But really when you think about it, duel booting with windows and linux sucks. When you want to use linux its fine but when you need to use something that requires windows operability then you have to reboot and shit. Thats a headache. Thats why you should have at least 2 pc&#39;s around if you want to run seperate o.s.

    I have 3 boxes, windows 2000 and windows xp on a dual boot on a desktop slackware linux on my mj-12 (previously red hat linux advanced server) and solaris 9 on my laptop.


    Duel booting 2 windows o.s. is not a problem. Its windows and linux together thats a major inconvenience.
