    Install Linux on an old installation of windows with bootcamp
    Hi everybody
    :bomb:
    I have a partition with Mac OSX and an other with XP on my intel macbook 2.0Ghz. I dit it with bootcamp. It works perfectly.

    My question is can I install a linux distribution without removing anything? All the softwares I usually use are installed and I don't want to reinstall them all. It was so long... I never used Linux before and I would like to try it. I downloaded the Xubuntu-6.06 distribution for i386. Is it ok?

    thanks for the help

    Someday, everybody will know who is diabolicHamster!! Hehe!
