is that it?Windows 7 should install if you have unpartitioned space for a new primary partition or an existing primary NTFS partition available for it to reformat and use. But here are some additional issues... Windows installers always overwrite GRUB in the master boot record, so you should be prepared to re-install GRUB in the master boot record after Windows is installed. And you also will need to teach yourself how to edit grub.conf to add Windows to the GRUB boot menu.

You have to install gnash-plugin too for your internet browser.
