Hi again, Graeme:
Thanks again for the advice.
"If XP is going to be your secondary OS, then, depending on exactly what you still use it for, it may be easier to have a single boot install and run XP in a VM."
I will have to look into what a virtual box is.
I am still incredibly new to linux, but as it looks now, I THINK I would prefer to (eventually) have JUST linux and run about three or four of the xp apps I have through wine (namely, my payroll program and quicken home and business 2011 and an old version of photoshop 7 and illustrator 9).
Notepad++ seems to work well in linux mint, so I am VERY happy about that.
Now if I can find a good POS system (as I mentioned in my other thread) I can then kick windows to the curb...
