I would like to keep experimenting and try out LMCQ17 on my HDD.  I have already tried it on the LiveUSB but that is just no good, I need to really try it out in real time ya know.  If I understand right, all I have to do is "Install" just like I did with my current LMMQ17 Dual boot/XP and create another partition with the installer, or will the third partition have to be done manually with gparted?

it will do it automatically IF you have empty space on your disk. If not I think you can create room by moving data around with gparted.

A/V Software? I don't need A/V software. I've run Linux since '98 w/o A/V software and have never had a virus. I never even had a firewall until '01 when I began to get routers with firewalls pre installed. With Linux if a vulnerability is detected a fix is quickly found and then upon your next update the vulnerability is patched.  If you must worry about viruses  on a Linux system only worry about them in the sense that you can infect a windows user. I recommend Linux Mint or, if you need a lighter weight operating system that fits on a cd, MX14 or AntiX.

Thanks bmike1, I do have space, not a lot but enough to try out this distro for a little while.
