    Two things to say:

    1> Kindly do not use CAPITALS.

    2> Have you tried vmware server, a free product that you can use to run Linux <INSIDE> XP? You can very easely test the various situations yourself and then ditch in right to Linux installation.

    See for VMware here. I hope you will find it useful.
