  • Do you have Compiz enabled ? Try disabling that. – Sathyajith Bhat Dec 26 '09 at 16:01

You can have both XP and Linux on the same disk, by using Linux as an application within Windows. This way, you don't disturb XP at all.

I suggest the Wubi linux distribution, since it's a variant of the very popular and easy to use Ubuntu Linux:

Wubi -- an officially supported Ubuntu installer for Windows

    Wubi is the simplest way to have Ubuntu on Windows. Much simpler to install and use than VirtualBox. And MUCH more "seamless". I recommend this over VirtualBox, no matter what. – harrymc Dec 26 '09 at 18:32
