This is not really a problem, but more of a general advice situation. I am going to school online, but since I am online I am not getting hands-on. I will be buying a laptop. I will put Linux, which version I don't know, and I will be putting Solaris on an a portable hard drive.
One of my question is does anyone know of a program that will allow at least 2 out of the 3 operating systems to communicate over a network?

My other question is since I want to do this. mostly on my own, are there any books you would recommend me picking up?

I would consider using a virtual machine if you have a new enough laptop. A VM is a software version of a real computer.You run the VM within xp and it looks like any other application but is a real computer. It doesn't bork your xp like dual boot would. When you know more then consider dual boots or simply clean installs each time.

There are also live cd's that work fine to see if your hardware is supported.

Books. Well. paw through the ones at book stores and see what you might be interested. The subject is too huge for anyone to know.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
