1. Introduction

Many people have machines, which (unfortunately) come pre-loaded with Windows 95™. After exploring the Internet, many users find Linux, and want to run it because it is a better operating system at a much better price. There are many different issues to address when considering running both operating systems. One such issue is the fact that newer computers usually come with large EIDE hard drives, and Windows 95™ has extensions on the old FAT filesystem. Linux understands these issues and can handle these challenges in hardware and software.
