Most versions of linux come with a boot loader built into them (usuall GRUB, which is good) and gives you the option of what OS to boot too, it also allows you to set a default OS to boot into after a certain amount of seconds if you aren't present to choose.

That's the other loader I was thinking of... Both Lilo and Grub work well and comes with pretty much every version of Linux. My laptop dual boots Fedora Core with Grub and never has a problem.

Sounds to me like he's actually looking for a LiveCD and not a true dual boot setup. He wants to "run on windows" and "off a disk" so I would recommend trying out KNOPPIX or Mepis Linux. Hit up http://www.linuxiso.org/ to download the iso for the livecd.

You mentioned SuSE in a later post.. doesn't SuSE have a LiveCD release??

i noticed that before the 1st response, "boot magic", and u said cmon, well boot magic is actually a great booting program, usually bundled with partition magic. they are the best for partitioning and multi-booting, but the bad part is theyre not free, last time i checked $20 or something. if u want more info google it
