And never install some fancy window managers other than
boring Windows on Windows. Will only give you trouble.

I'm only willing to install Linux on this machine when I
should decide to buy a secondary hard drive. My system runs
with evil Windows XP Pro, but at least it is stable and
everything works. I miss the symlink from Linux, though.

Sounds like the hard disk problem I had with my old machine,
which was nearly 6 years old when it died: The main hard
disk stopped working.
