I want to learn linux, but I have win 7 and I need to access the internet and my linux instruction files in order to learn the Linux commands.
This means I must have both OS's installed and running at the same time, so I can read the instructions on the Win 7 OS then practice them on the Linux distro.
So you can use a virtual machine as you can see, and Nick has looked at your specs so your pc is perfectly capable of doing so.
You can also run the LiveDVD if you like. Then you can access those files on your W7 install from the LiveDVD, or, you can load them to a USB and read them from there. You can also go online with the LiveDVD so as to look stuff up to learn commands and such for linux and save them to usb, or your W7 install. The only issue here will be that you can't save anything to the linux OS, but you could save to a usb, if that is sufficient.
You might clarify what form your linux instruction files are in, Word, internet links etc. I have avoided Virtual Machines but need to learn, I used once but to much to learn right now. That would be a good way to learn though. Don't worry to much about learning commands though as most of the operating systems are quite easy to learn. I try not to use commands as much as possible LOL. For most things there is a graphical option and the terminal is not needed.
Hope that helps.
