I'm a college student with minimal Linux experience. I have an HP laptop with 2 internal 80GB drives. I want to put XP Media Center (which is what came with the laptop) on the 1st 80GB drive. I want to partition the 2nd 80GB drive and use half of it for data and the other half for Linux.
1) What is a good version of Linux to use and learn from?
2) What kind of issues could happen from having a dual-boot? Namely, will it work?
3) What are some good websites and books I could use to learn Linux better? I have some books, but they're from older distributions - Fedora Core 2.
I already have some CompTIA certs and I want to get the Linux+ cert as well so I'd appreciate any advice about how to get proficient.
