John, welcome to the community. We will all be excited to see the different
systems people bring to install on. Certainly feel free to bring your laptop
and accessories. I would urge you before doing a dual boot scenario, to just
make sure you have backed up all your My Documents, Documents and Settings,
and configuration files for your applications on your windows system.
I'll definitely look forward to seeing you at the Install Fest !
aka. Master Chief
