    Gman there is no problem in having the two (Win 7 and Zorin or another Linux Distro) Just allow the Linux Distro to begin install, it will get to a point when it asks where you want to install Zorin i.e beside Windows on same disk etc look to the bottom of List and it will say something to the similar to other configuration, then it will com to a screen with all of your Discs shown; if you only have two then one will be marked as Win 7 May be sda1, NTFS (which is the file system) or similar and the other will be the disc that you want to install to, if it asks what file system you want for Zorin look for ext4. After you have installed Linux will have installed a new boot screen giving you the opportunity to choose to boot Win 7 or Zorin. The Ubuntu Forums are also a good place to ask for help or advice. Good Luck. I have been using various Linux Distros for years and although there is a learning curve, it is worth while and it is a great system and for FREE. Steve
