hi. i bought a new computer that i want to put xp on. my old computer that i dont care about is running the copy of xp i need to put on the new one. the old computer has the ntfs file system. if i put linux on the old computer as the only os will it work with an ntfs drive? from what i have been able to find, no it wont. so my question is how do i change to a new file system so i can use a different os? i know, i really dont have any idea what im talking about. sorry.

Linux runs on it's own filesystem ext2/ext3. If you want to install linux on the machine just go ahead and start the install and you can format the driving during the partitioning portion of the installation.
