Hey Paul. Will RWFF run on Xandros (Linux)? :?:

From what I can tell it seems unlikely it would run on Xandros, at least without some additional steps or software. TransGaming offers a system to enable you to run many DirectX games on Linux, and there's a very good chance RWFF would work using their system. It's also possible to set up a PC for dual boot, so you can boot it up to either Linux or Windows, if that's an option for you.

Dual boot system

That's what I did a week ago. Partitioned 2 harddrives into 4 partitions and set up XP on one and Xandros on another with one HD for storage and a small one for a shuffle between XP and Xandros. But I find a lot of programs just will not run in Xandros. I had to kick my USB modem for DSL and buy an ethernet modem to get Xandros connected to the web. Aside from that, I really like the Xandros OS and think I will like it even more as I become more familiar with it. KE
