I have enough space on my hard drive. It is 160 GB and comes with XP 
prei-nstalled. I intend re-partitioning and then double booting so I can 
keep my XP pre-setup for warranty purposes if I ever need it. I have a 3 
year warranty on the Acer.
I will be installing Kubuntu with KDE 4.2.2 as you suggested.
Thanks for your advise. It kinda set my thoughts right.
