Ubuntu/Kubuntu, and dual booting Windows XP

    Hello All,

    I have been a Windows user since Windows 3 (then came 3.1, then came 3.11
    which was called Windows for Workgroups) then 95, 98, ME, 2k, etc... And
    just recently I started to shop around for a Linux distribution that had a short
    learning curve. I was recommend to use either Ubuntu (Gnome) or Kubuntu (KDE).

    Well, I went for Ubuntu for a week, then installed Kubuntu on top of that, and
    I really liked it. I was dual booting them with Windows XP. But - since I didn't
    know 'nix too well, I had someone messed up the boot loader!

    So long story short, I had to re-install XP :D

    What's the consensus here about running Ubuntu with XP? Do you all favor
    one over the other, and have you had any trouble dual booting?

    I never used anything other than Windows... Just like you - used from early versions.
    To avoid problems like yours I usually create an image of my HD every week or so. If anything happens - I can restore all my stuff on the same or new drive within minutes...
