I've been wanting to try out Linux for years, but I dare not just uninstall XP and start cold on Linux. I want to ease into it I finally have my chance, because I was given an extra machine that can I can run Ubuntu while I keep XP on the laptop.
Here's what I want to do:
I don't want to clutter my desk with an additional monitor/keyboard/mouse that interfaces with my Ubuntu desktop. I'd like to make it so that I can somehow "switch" to the Ubuntu desktop while still using my laptop monitor/keyboard/mouse.
I have looked through the forums to see if I could help myself, but the answers just haven't been simple enough for a Ubuntu virgin such as myself.
Thanks for any help in advance.
