Sorry if i posted this on the wrong section.

I just bought a notebook today and it happen that it is a Linpus Linux base system and has no OS installed into it yet. So how do i install Windows XP Professional on it? I'm not familiar with the commands as i had no knowledge on Linux.(only know how to install windows from dos) >.<;;

Edit: And also how do i partition the drive? Thanks in advance.

Unclear how it can be a Linpus (chinese Linux) system and not have an OS on it; and I'm even less clear on how installing Windows could remedy this shortcoming in your eyes.

But in any case, XP doesn't sit on top of DOS; it's self-contained, and needs no prior software installation. Boot from your legally purchased Windows XP installer CD #1 -- which might require you to go into the BIOS setup and change the boot order so that the CD is checked first -- and it should automatically invade -- er, install itself.

Didn't know Linpus is a chinese Linux (thought it was a newer version of Linux). Anyway, boot order in BIOS has been set to CD-ROM. Able to boot and install windows.

Thanks
