I know Linux won't solve the hard disk problem, but I need to convince my father it's the hard disk or it'll be impossible to get along with him in the near future.

Doesn't really matter now, because I just restarted the computer, and it automatically checked the disk for consistency, returning multiple errors within seconds.

I'm about to research how to do a net install, then tomorrow I'll ask my father to make me a cd. I have an external hard drive I can install it on.

Ultimately, I want to run Win7 within Linux for gaming purposes, and nothing else.

I'll post updates on my progress. :) Hopefully, I'll be able to post an update from my "new" Ubuntu computer tomorrow night.
