I wondered how soon a thread like this might take to appear

For all the wrong reasons, Linux is finally going to make its way in to the standard househhold !

I may have a go at it, I'd like to get some practice on it before I build my web server.

There is also the option of running a Virtual OS from inside windows.

Virtual PC for Windows by connectix:

http://www.connectix.com/products/vpc5w.html

"Run applications in XP, 2000, NT, 98, 95, 3.1 – even DOS, OS/2, NetWare, or Linux, simultaneously on the same PC, with no need to reboot."

or:

VMware Workstation:

http://www.vmware.com/products/desktop/ws_features.html#new32
"VMware Workstation is virtual machine software for technical professionals. It lets you run multiple versions of operating systems simultaneously on single computer. Quit wasting time configuring hardware, installing software, rebooting/reconfiguring systems. Spend more time developing, testing, and deploying applications and delivering support. "
