    I need to learn Unix and i have this book, "Introduction to Unix/Linux" and it comes with a CD that installs Unix onto your computer. I have windows XP currently on this computer, if I install Unix, will it mess everything up?
    okay it appears to be fedora linux instead of purely unix. When put into the computer and booted it starts installing it right away. can i continue or will it over wright windows?

    If you just install linux then it should take all your files on Windows XP and change them so they'll work properly with Linux or Unix. If you would like to have them both in your laptop, then you should get Partition Master or something like that. And also, where did you get Unix? I thought that it was so expensive that schools can't even buy them.
