So things in my life have slowed down after two years of non-stop work, school, and whatever else came up, I have free time:p:p

I want to play some games that I have been wanting to play; Most notably Elder Scrolls 4.

It has a gold rating in WINE, but I just cant seem to get it to work right. So I would much rather dual boot Windows on my Pangoline Performance.

Any sugestions or pitfalls? I know about having to reload GRUB with a live-cd due to windows over riding it with it's master boot record. I haven't dealt with dual booting much, just lots of VMware sessions at work.

I know that the S76 website has links to all the drivers i'll need. Kudos to you guys!

I'll be putting XP SP3 on it.

So any links to clear howtos would be appreciated.

Thanks,

actually I found a really good howto for Oblivion in WINE and I was just had to go into the .ini file and change a 0 to a 1 for Pixle shaders.

Works so far.

So never mind, I'd rather not have to put windows on anyways :p
