I recently bought an HP Pavilion A710N desktop. I need to keep 'doze on
it for a couple of applications, but want to partition it and dual boot
Linux. If anyone has successfully installed Linux on this particular HP
model, I'd appreciate feedback on which distro you used and any problems
or issues you had to deal with. I already have PartitionMagic 7 and can
use that if necessary.
