i have a wintel 64-bit hardware, 32-bit vista oem'd on c:\250GB, and a never-used (much-later integrated) d:\500GB. i want to install Unix and Linux on the d:\ i just purchased ATI 11.0 and Disk Director Suite 10.0. i assume that i will need to install ATI first, to obviate the lavish pains associated with a vista re-install ... am i correct so far? and i will therefore need to initially install ATI on c:\ ... again, is this correct? can i then install DDS on the (now-vacant) d:\, or must i install DDS on c:\? if i must install DDS on c:\ then, with DDS now on c:\, will i be able to install *Nix on d:\? [GLOW="purple"]i assume that a DDS wizard will guide me through this (i pray!)?[/GLOW] now that i have *Nix on d:\, can i now uninstall ATI on c:\ and re-install ATI on d:\? and parallelly, can i also uninstall DDS on c:\ and re-install DDS on d:\? if this is all correct then does it make a difference whether ATI and DDS run on Linux, Unix (or Vista)? can i just initially install ATI and/or DDS on a 1GB flash drive (rather than on on c:\)? finally, are there any thoughts on what flavors of Unix and Linux to install? many thanks for all your help.
