migrating to Linux from Windows
Hi . I want to ditch windows XP as i am sick of microsoft .So ive been thinking about linux and now i have decided thats the o/s i want so ive ordered the Cd.
Now here is where i start to think ooh am i going to be able to do it ok as im not that up on pc's and how they run . My knowledge is literally up / downloading programs .
If i install in on a clean but not new hard drive will the way i start up and log on to the internet be the same after ive installed the neccessary programs?
What happens to all my photos and music . do i have to burn them onto a disk then download again after ?
Can i install it on my original harddrive then totally erase windows ?
Can i totally bugger up my pc so it wont work ever again
Please forgive my ignorance , im very willing and capable of learning ,but would really appreciate someone in the back ground that can guide me some of the way .
Thanking anyone in advance for any help they may offer ,
