Dearest experts,

I am a Windows user and recently I wanted to try on Unix technology but I do not know anything about Unix and Linux.

I have a PC running on p3 733, 384MB RAM and my current OS are Windows 2000 professional and Windows Me. I wanted to install Linux into this machine but I dunno how to set triple boot with upon installing Linux.

The effect I want is after installing Linux into my machine, the default OS is Windows Me as currently my default OS is Windows Me.

What must I do inorder to fulfill these things above. Can you guys please kindly advise me?

Regards,
Franco
