Any suggestions? I would like to get away from relying on Windows, and
OS, as I heard it was superior.
Debian has a Windows installer, you can read about it here:
http://www.goodbye-windows.com/ or go straight to the installer page and
get the install started: http://goodbye-microsoft.com/
It will be easier to make a Linux partition and swap partition ahead of
time before the install than worry about it while doing the install,
just make a "GParted" http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php cd or
put it on a flash-drive using "unetbootin"
If you are a totally new Linux user (Newbie) you may want to start with
SimplyMEPIS-11.0 http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=06664 based on Debian
stable and comes with lots of important new user help and an easier way
to get started using Debian.
