Tonight I finally did it. I dumped microsoft completly off my machine and installed Linux on the entire 3 hard drives! I feel like I just busted my cherry.

I can't think of any reason why I still need that machine running any Windows products. It was the 3rd time I had to re-install XP and 2000 (used both off and on) all each time having to re-install my Linux partitions since Windows wipes out the boot sector and I didn't use a boot manager other than lilo.

I may miss some games, but hey I would rather spend my time trying to get WINE to work.

Thanks for all the support
