    Thumbs up

    i never used breezy but i have hoary installed on a dual boot system with XP. all i did to make it work is install GNU GRUB on MBR and well, that's it, it worked out of the box, far better than Red Hat i would say.

    No, I'm not dual-booting my XP box. I have a separate system for my Linux testing. It's a PIII 550 and runs better under any Linux distro than it ever did with Windows.
