Dinosaurs...I know you're still among us! Please speak.

Dinosaurs, are you still using AGP Video card & Pentium-4 ? Don't let the upgrade bug sting you. That IS catastrophic extinction! Having been around this site/forum many years, I'd still like to think there are those still trying to squeeze out the last bit of pc & gaming power with the older mobos & P4s, etc.

Dualboot - Linux/Windows

Ron lucas
Can someone please tell me if I build a computer with two say 125 Gb hard discs, can I install Linux on one and Windows on the other. If I do this can I choose which system I boot up on without any problems? EDIT: Changed your Topic Title, cause a name is very senseless.
