Watch out for 'OS locked' systems.  Apparently some manufacturers Dell 
among them, are now shipping systems which will only allow Windows 
installations - how I'm not sure - possibly won't read anything bar 
FAT32 or NTFS.  The system is called TCPA - supported by Vista so it can 
only grow.

Kind regards,
