On a different note. As I might of mentioned, I installed openSuSE and
Ubuntu on my laptop and use it for know as my main machine for experimenting
with Linux distros. I got a little carried away, and installed Ubuntu on
my main Windows computer, and should have chosen the option to install with
live CD or SD card. Fortunately, I still have my windows partition fully
intact and everything works fine. The minor issue is, when I first boot up,
I have to wait till the GRUB screen comes up then choose the Windows
listing. I have detailed instructions to change it, but for some reason I
can't get into Ubuntu because I lost the password. This is a real minor
prob, the only real pain is, I don't have a Windows 7 install disk being
that I bought this computer from the store and all it has is recovery
partition. I like GRUB is very powerful and straightforward. In the
future, I plan on buy or building some more desktops and devoting entirely
to Linux. I have an HP pavilion at the moment, nice machine, but I would
like to go back to me building from scratch which I did last time.

I believe that if you boot into your winderz you can make the HP
recovery Disks. I forgot where the program is, but I had to do that once
with a compaq laptop.
I think all laptops and computers come this way anymore. Nobody sends
the disks. You have to make your own.
