I'm not an expert or anything, I even had someone install Linux for me!, 
but on this computer Linux was installed first.  I remember that because 
I had to backup my Win files.  My friend installed Slackware, 
partitioned my hard drive, and then installed Win on one of the 
partitions.  I can't access any of the other partitions from Win, but 
that's ok because I only use it when I use my webcam (no Linux drivers 
for this one yet).  I don't know why Caldera would require Win to 
install first when Slackware doesn't, but like I said, I'm no expert.
