Wow, I gave up on Corel Linux because the others seemed much better and I thought Corel stopped supporting it. Does Corel still sell and support it? From Corel's website, it doen't even look like they tested WordPerfect for Linux on it.

They indicated they tested it on the following:

Xandros« v1.0
SuSE« v8.2
Redhat« v9.x
Mandrake« v9.x
Slakware« v9.x

I really like Mandrake myself.

Is VMWare one of the free Linux versions? Or is it one you pay for? I have an old notebook I was about to install Linux on and I'm trying to decide which one.

I have been using VMware on Mint (Ubuntu basically) and it has done things that windows can throw at it so I would say give it a try

Thats enough of that. Ed.

It's the one you pay for... errrrrrr ... ummmm unless you have access to the usenet Embarassed 

I have to say initially I got nowhere with the UK VMware help team and being a meanie I would not part with the cash till I knew if it would do as I wanted...... hence the usenet.... however, I can now say that it does do the job although I have not used it with Paradox.

The great advantage is that because it's virtual machine you could have whatever version of (say) Paradox running with whatever version of Windows work best together and when it all falls over just fire up another clone and off you go again.

Basically, each machine takes upto 8gb of disk space and the limiting factor to running lots of them is the amount of RAM which gets divided up between them and Linux. There are demo versions you can download to play with - for all the hassle it has to be said that VMware is streets (miles even) ahead of Wine and the other free virtual machine the name of which I can't remember!!!

There is a fly in the ointment, in that as you probably know Linux is not that keen on NTFS but will work happily with FAT32. I have got around that on this particular machince by having removable HDs - a dedicated one with LInux\VMware, another with XP and one "communal" data disk formatted with FAT32 which both Linux and Windows can freely access with no problems. 

I can't pretend to be an expert on it, but I have struggled so anything else just ask - this message is sent via XP through Linux!

Oh...... and a Happy Christmas  Smile

Thats enough of that. Ed.
