ColinM Posted April 15, 2005 Report Share Posted April 15, 2005 (edited) Can you help me to decide which is the most stable/efficient solution? I've got a new computer with a 40GB HD on which I'm running Mdk 10.1 OE and love it. However there are a couple of programmes that I prefer on my old windows box. I've tried all the Linux alternatives but none matches the two I like that only run under Win. So every day, I want to use these two programmes to work on my website, whilst still using Linux for almost everything else. As a Linux novice I see I have a choice: 1) Partition the new computer drive, transfer all my Win98 OS and Win data from the older drive to the new one, and then install Mdk afterwards. (No I don't want to use Win XP) This I think you call Dual Boot. 2) Take the old HD out and put it into the new computer and configure it somehow to use both drives, allowing me to switch at will between drives and OSs. Which would be best/simplest, and where do I start learning how to do it safely? I don't mind re-installing Mdk, because I rodgered it whilst trying to sort out my monitor woes (see another thread). Since then several programmes are very buggy. Ta! Edited April 22, 2005 by ColinM Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
