    Hello, i'm new to Linux and have been working with Windows all my life. My desktop computer isn't very fast and i think Debian Linux can help.
    Can i install Debian Linux without formatting Windows 7 (i know you can if you install windows last)
    my wireless card doesn't have any Drivers for Linux, but there is a XP-Vista that works on Windows 7 that i need to know how to install in Debian, Thank you!

    i'm reading the Debian Linux manual and it says i can install it with windows as long as i have another partition, which luckily i do with 142GB and nothing on it. so can i install the driver somehow?
