ok. This may seem odd, but I was just looking at mandrake 9.2 on ebay, and a screenshot showed WinXP running in Mandrake. How do you do this? I'm increasingly impressed with Linux, but I want to use XP for gaming. Thanks.
There's an emulator out there called VMWare which lets you create virtual machines. (i.e. install windows in linux or linux in windows). The program is expensive for both platforms however. In addition, it emulates a really slow-end machine, so don't expect to be able to do any gaming through it. (Basically the most you could use it for is a web browser, word processing, light applications, etc.)
