wow...long time...look read up on like running multi 0S on same
box ...like say centos and windows. In order to do that you have to play
w/your hard drive space and spec it out... Now I don't remember the
command or program you use but I think it's a good start for ya

If ya think you smart,you pretty friggin ignorant. If you think you
smart enuf...then you tellin a story, you ready for that challenge!
