I want to try out Linux but I don't want to reformat my hard drive with Windows on it.

Is there a way I can do that without removing Windows from my PC or reformatting my hard disk? I am afraid I might ruin the partition and render Windows useless.

Thanks a bunch.

Intrigued by Linux made ​​me decide to install a Linux OS as my second OS.. It seems I have to learn again to use the OS. The Problem is, I've just installed PCLinuxOS on your PC. But do not know how to dial the internet setting. I used Smartup d1200p.
Please Linuxers. For those who know will understand this was a newbie.
Thanks for giving the solution……..

I am using one tape drive in one UNIX server. Daily  i used to take backup and weekly also i used to take backup.

When I try to restore one of the UNIX file system from one of the media i am getting error as below

Cannot create file: Not a directory write error extracting inode 14765, name ./sfw/sbin/smbd”.

Can it may be error in server or it may be in the disk.

Hi friends,

I have a lot of problem loading my Linux operating system.

If it were windows, i could have tried the bios menu, or i could have run in safe mode. But since it is Linux, i don't know what to do.

Someone please  help me.

Is there any similar option in Linux?

How am i supposed to boot my computer?

Good morning,

I am new to Linux and started using fedora 14 for some months.

Since last evening, I am getting the error that my Linux kernel got corrupted or something happened with it and I have to send report to some url.

Now I don’t know whether it is the fake message due to some virus or original message by the operating system.

The actual error is as under.

Your system had a kernel failure
There is diagnostic information available for this
failure. Do you want to submit this information to
the www.kerneloops.org website for use by the
Linux kernel developers?
