Thanks for the instructions. I have most of my stuff backed up, so I can feel fairly relaxed about all this.I also have a few spare hard drives with windows or Suse 10.3 installed kicking around that I can just throw in and go. I can get what I need off my hard windows partition that way, if whatever happens prevents me from running windows also. I will do whatever works. I can upgrade properly later if I need to. I'm glad it's the holidays and I have some spare time. Thanks again.
