Hi eveyone!

I have been a XP user since 4 years now.Now I am planning to give 7.10 a try.But I have a few questions before that:
  • I have two partitions in my 40 gb HDD;C: with 8.5 gb free and D: with 4.5 gb free.XP is installed in D: drive.Would I be able to install 7.10 directly in C: without re-partitioning and stuff.??.I am just plain nervous I might end up doing some mistake :thumbsup: .
  • Downloading the huge distro over the net is not possible for me.I have heard they send CDs for free if you want one!!Is This True??If yes,where do I order one.??
  • Will my windows games work on linux too.??
Any help is welcome.!! :flowers: .

Regards,
Rustendrage.
