Make sure you have atleast a gig of RAM. If you will be running two OSes
simultaneously then your CPU will be strained quite a lot. What is the
rating on the CPU? It should be ATLEAST 2800+ BTW the FC3 kernel has some
bug which slows down the system to a crawl when you have 1G of RAM.
Dont just search. Find. Check out the new MSN Search!
