I am looking at a HP pavilion a6544f dualcore quad desktop from office supply place. It is a Vista sys, w/4 megs of memory. I like the XP pro and am concerned about the possibility of a dual boot system. I have used one before with OS/2 and Windows 2000 I think it was. I would like to do the same kind of thing, is that a reasonable thing to do, and or is it even possible anymore?? Any assistance or advice would be appreciated.

Dual-booting is still possible...plenty of material about such when you decide what operating systems you want to run.

It's reasonable if...you want to do it :thumbsup:. I did it for awhile when I first ran XP Home and Win 98 (3 days).
