My apologies, I think I got a little confused

I just noticed, in your first (and last) post you mentioned Xandros 4, but a couple posts back you had KNOPPIX 5.1.1, which was what I went by.
From what I read here, here, and at wikipedia, Xandros doesn't have a Live CD, and it's a premium Linux distro. You may have installed a 30-day trial version.
In any event, my apologies that I didn't believe you that it was actually installed. You know, you could decide to just go dual-boot with a Linux distro now, since you're (inadvertently) there anyway.
You can view the partition(s) that Xandros made thru your Win Xp Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management. This site (although Ubuntu related) has excellent info on dual-booting. You can use a distro's installer to resize the partion. I only allotted about 10GB for mine --5.5gb for root, 4.5gb for /home, and 1GB for swap. Making a FAT32 partition is helpful too, for swapping files between the two OS's. To be on the safe side you could defrag first. This standalone freeware defragger will move your data to the beginning of your WinXP partition better than the Windows one will.
Just wanted to clear that up. My apologies again. I'll shutup now!
