    I am proud to say that after reading a lot on the internet and with the help of friends here on Wilders I managed to make a dual booting system.Thanks to all who have helped me.I am writing this post from Kubuntu while updating the system.Now I have a lot to do,printers scanner etc. but that is not urgent,I have a lot of time and a lot to learn.I sure will be asking new questions.

    Always be aware, its not Windows and there is a learning curve that pays of well later in case you manage to stick with it.

    Congratulations!

    Next project for you is to triple boot or even quadruple boot. I use Gparted Live Cd as a tool to multiboot Windows 7, Ubuntu, openSUSE and Fedora Core.

    Cheers!

    I am writing what I did on paper to remember it.I will do it for my parents PC too.They only use their computer for internet surfing and e-mail,so Kubuntu will be enough for them.I will be glad to summarize what I did later on.I would love to help the others.I had never used linux before and this is a very good experiment to show others that Linux is not something to be afraid of.
