If you haven't figured it out yet, I did it myself… Had to go through a bunch of steps in order to get it done, but… It is possible.

I'll be hanging out here in the forums for a while, I'll keep an eye out for your response if you want help on this.

I've got to find out about installing virtual machine software on my 8.1, then installing a Linux distro on top of that virtual machine.
So, I'll be around for a while.
