Howto install Linux on a Windows XP or NT system

Upgrade your windows to a Linux system the easiest possible way: running an installer on your Windows. Instlux is a windows installer which, allows you to install Linux from Windows installer.


From the project home page, “…The final goal is not only to provide a way of installing Linux on a Windows system, but being a tool for a complete migration from Windows to Linux, by getting the system and user information stored on Windows, and writing default values to the Linux installation according to them, easying this way the migration…

Cool 🙂
The main advantage is you do not worry any more about configuring your system to boot from a CDROM/DVDROM. Right now, it supports only two distributions: Ubuntu and OpenSuSE.

See project home page for more information.
