Do you know if your Dell came with a backup partition for reinstalling
Windows? If so, any problems with retaining it? And (I know this is a hard
question) would it still work after repartitioning to accommodate Linux?
What's new for me in this is that so far all my machines have been generics
that I've assembled myself, so I have no experience with Dell customizations.
I don't want to lose anything useful that Dell puts on the machine.
And by the way (I know that this is off-topic), what's the difference between
a notebook and a laptop?
