A question or two about installing Red Hat 8.0 before I start:

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I want to install Red Hat 8.0 over the XP OS. (Replacing the XP OS). My questions are: 1. Will the Linux OS change the BIOS setup? 2. Is my hardware compatible with a Linux OS? I have a MS Windows XP PC with a Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50 GHZ, 4.0GB RAM, and a NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT video card. (HowTos)
