How to boot from USB
Before i do anything, i am going to install the free Ububtu OS from their web replacing windows.
1. Will my games work on Ubuntu?
Ship Sim 2008
UK Truck Simulator
2. If so, How to I boot from my USB that I downloaded the files to?
[EDIT] Actually, i have found that you can install it alongside windows so i can run either of them. So would that be ok with my dv6000 specs?

Re: How to boot from USB
You could always move this to the Linux thread as it is regarding ubuntu..
but as a linux user-in short
You can use unetbootin UNetbootin - Homepage and Downloads to make a bootable usb and install ubuntu off of there..quite a simple process
some also prefer this: Boot and run Linux from a USB flash memory stick | USB Pen Drive Linux
yes with your specs you can definitely dual boot windows and Linux...
You can always partition your Hard drive for linux space..
