Um... I got a compaq Armada 7800 p2 266... 10 Gig HD 384 Ram (Woohoo!)... Anyway this sucker is running Winxp it runs fine but I want Linux (Ubuntu or something with Enlightenment?)...

It has a floppy drive and I have a usb drive (128mb) and a WiFi card (Dlink-G122[supports G])...
I'd rather not remove the HD which is what some people are suggesting... Anyway I want it to dual boot windows(Which I can't really remove since there is no way to get it back on).
So basically I was thinking I'd partition magic it to have about 4-5 gigs free for Linux and install somehow... now here's the thing I don't know how...

I don't know how to get my Laptop to boot from usb key or floppy (Does it do it by default?). I could probably install a one floppy distro but I have no idea how to upgrade to a larger graphical distro.
MSN me at Deliverancelev4@hotmail.com if you're interested in being bothered about it.
