linux installed again

The laptop now has two versions of linux on it – I have installed suse 7.2 on a virtual machine within virtual PC on top of windows, which works surprisingly well and a red hat linux 8.0 on a seperate partition, which I am also impressed with.

The Linux install on top of windows might sound stupid to some people, but the idea is that I can experiment with it, even setting up several virtual machines and simulate networking between them, all the while without having to reboot the host machine, and being able to surf and use newsgroups when I get stuck.

The “proper” red hat linux install is great, but I haven’t used it much because I am hooked on certain windows only apps at the moment…
