    Accidently installed WinXP a second time on my 2nd harddrive and have to pick which version to run every time I boot up... whats the best way to uninstall the latest version? It wants to default to it when I boot up but I don't want it on there. I could just delete the extra windows folder, just not sure if it will cause an error?

    Insert Linux install disk in CD/DVD drive
    Boot from CD/DVD
    When asked if you want to overwrite the currently installed OS, say YES!
    Complete install
    Enjoy :D :bow:
