    Well basically dual booting is where two o/s are installed on either seperate hard drives, or onto seperate partions but on the same hard drive.

    When you have dual booted your computer and you turn it on, it will appear with a menu and let you choose what o/s you want to boot. So if you had both Linux and Windows, then you could choose one of them to boot into.

    Regards Jase :)
