Yep not many who don't dual boot. Only a real hard case nix user ditches windows al together. Presently I boot xp and vista with the mentioned linux versions on my machine. You should give linux a try again the desktop has come along way since redhat 9. The newest equivalent would be redhat fedora core 6 as free or redhat enterprise linux if ya got the bucks for it. I recomend PCLinuxOS as an excelent choice to get back into it, everything just plain works as advertised. Any way nice talking with you.

I have a Sun UltraSPARC 30 running Solaris 9 as one of the machines on my LAN. I used it along with 4 other PCs to crunch Work Units for the SETI project for about 4 years.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
I've installed many, many flavors over the years - redhat, mandrake, suse, pclinuxos, mepis, ubuntu, xubuntu, kubuntu, slackware, zenwalk, etc...
Until recently I was running ubuntu as my main OS, but I got a HDTV card that requires XP to work so I'm back to running M$ windows for the time being...
