I installed Linux on the hard drive of my old computer and brought it across to this one, thinkig I would experiment with it now and again. But most of the programs I love are only in Windows, so I never have.

So now the plan is to use the extra drive to sort out a really lean and Linuxy installation of XP and try to keep it that way.

Main programs:
  • Browser/Email: Opera, with Firefox 2 for Operaphobic sites
  • Office Suite: OpenOffice
  • PDF reader: Foxit Reader
  • Image Browser: Picasa
  • Editor: NoteTab
  • File Manager: DOpus
  • Shell/Launcher: BBLean, F&RR

Its a fairly basic setup - single user, broadband, no network. I'm looking for advice on what to partioining to use, and a maintenance system that will keep it from getting all messy again.

First piece of advice: test in vmware beforing installing, this will save you a lot of grief.

Some of the applications can be 'installed' directly from the install CD, others can with some registry tweaks (that can be applied install-time), and some will have to be installed manually after windows.

Also look at RyanVM's post-sp2 update packs.
