I have a friend who tried to put Windows XP onto their computer ( the computer had Win 98 on it and has two hard drives ), when they did this some thing went wrong and they can no longer use the operating system. Now I have the Fedora Core and like it and my friend wants me to put it on the computer when I fix it, if I can. What I am curious of is this: I have been told that it is best to install a Windows OS first if you are going to do a dual boot of windows and Fedora Core. Is this what I should do in this situation as well ? Or should I be putting them on different physical hard drives ( asthey have two in this machine. Should I put the windows OS on the "C" drive ? and the LINUX on the "D" drive? Or do I have to put both OS'es on both drives? I should point out also that I am going to be putting windows ME on the computer as I suspect that the copy that they had tried to install may have been corrupted ( it was a burnt copy, and had never been installed on a computer that they knew of.

Thanks in advance if you can help. . .

I a running the Fedora Core on my computer, it is working fine. I downloaded WINE ( Wine is not a CPU emulator ) and "Extracted" the file in my "Home" directory. What are the nest steps that I need to take to run a WIN32 program on my computer?

Thanks in advance for the help,

Aaron
