I know you can download Wine to run Windows games on Linux, but I want to make sure that everything in Linux can be just as good as it is in Windows XP. I’m wondering if networking will screw up considering the rest of my family runs on Windows… Does that mean no LAN? Stuff like that. I’ll post more details if people need more so check back.
I plan to have both Windows Xp SP3 and Ubuntu on my hard drive. I plan to put them on different partitions, but I do not know how bug to make the Partitions. I have a 180GB hard drive. I was thinking 100GB for windows, and 80Gb for Ubuntu. Is this to small or big to run Ubuntu smoothly.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04, and Windows XP on another drive, so i use dual boot. I just ran update manager on ubuntu and asked to reboot, so i rebooted. On the dual boot screen, i notice that there are two ubuntu OS options, one of which a newer version. How do i hide the older version off the dual boot screen? If i keep updating and this keeps happening, i will have a huge list of older ubuntus on the list.
I have two hard drives on my computer. One is C which the computer boots Windows XP from, and the other is drive F which is only used for storage.
I want to install ubuntu on drive F, and still be able to use it for storage. I would also like it be so that I can drag files onto drive F in windows, and be able to see them in Ubuntu. Is this possible, and if so, How?

I am buying a laptop that does not run on Windows XP. It uses Open Office instead of Microsoft Office. The only way I can print documents off is if i send it to my desktop computer, which runs on Windows XP. Will i be able to open my Open Office document on my Windows XP desktop computer?
