Linux newbie, Windoze more-or-less advanced user

Main focus:

   - backup / recovery alternatives
   - dual/boot or multi/boot with or without Windoze
   - System Emulation - VMware, Qemu, Colinux, User-Mode Linux, Bochs, Wine, CrossOver, Win4Lin
   - System Inter-operability - Captive, Wine, Ext2fs

Most attractive distros:

   - Fedora (used FC1 for very little time)
   - Ubuntu Linux (Debian un-bloated and more up-to-date
   - SystemRescue (intensively used for backup / recovery of Windoze
   - VectorLinux (lightweight distro suitable for an emulation)
   - Kurumin (Brazilian-Portuguese Live CD)
