    Thanks for the response ChristiW, but this is a new computer I just built for less than $100. Why would I want to have Windows installed? Linux will be the sole operating system for cost purposes, and because I think it is a mature OS and I'm eager to dip my toe in the water.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. I read the backup for Windows machine with all the hard drives and thought you had Windows already installed. My bad.

    Great distro is Debian! I would install that and put it on your hard drive. It's not a difficult distro to understand and use. (at least for me it's not ;) ) You can download a few distors and use the LiveCD to see which one you like without installing on your hard drive, then pick the one you like and install it.

    So once I had windows 7 and Vista on a divided partition so I could chose which one I was using. I can install linux that way? Or I can install it on a USB drive and run it that way? Sorry not trying to sound ignorant, just new to linux. Thanks

    But the fresh installation is the best, it allows to exploit the resources to maximum.
