So, I’ve got a Toshiba Satellite L45 laptop set up to dual-boot Windows XP and a couple flavors of Linux (Ubuntu 8.04 and one of the recent flavors of OpenSUSE). It’s fun to play around in Linux, but the simple fact is that most things I need to do, I can do in Windows, sometimes even more easily (unless someone knows how I can get Steam running in Linux so I can get my Peggle on between classes)
A big problem: I’m about to trade laptops with my mom (she has my much nicer Dell Dimension 1400N (IIRC), which I am getting the impression that she just kinda feels overwhelmed by, feature wise. Me? Big computer nerd. My mom? Not so much really. So I need to remove Ubuntu and OpenSUSE, and set it up so that everything boots straight up into Windows.
No, I don’t feel like showing my mom how to use Linux or how to use the bootloader to pick Windows every time, and I don’t think she feels inclined to learn, so Linux on the laptop is pretty much straight up out of the running here as an option. Any help is much appreciated.
