We began this look at installing Linux for complete newcomers last month with some very basic general advice on the whole issue of partitioning and
installing. In this months issue, were covering the practical side of your first installation, whether its on a stand-alone PC or alongside your
existing Windows installation. Before we begin, we need to remind you that theres one thing we cant stress clearly enough back up your system before
you begin if youre intending to install on a system that already has Windows running on it.
