    Just thinking out loud here Andy.
    I would assume you would want to install Windows first, as you would want LILO to handle the bootup.

    I reckon it's the same with Mandrake, but I'm no expert.

    Edit Looks like Bern-meister handled that while I was dawdling:thumb:

    Windows has an uncanny ability to ignore all things Linux. Yet Linux is powerful enough to handle Windows with ease.

    It really is easy to see which OS has the most potential when you start using Linux. Quite a powerhouse compared to the choked-off proprietary functionality of Windows.
    Shame in fact Windows has such a powerful browser compared to Linux - I guess big-money development does have advantages?
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
