How do i instal ubuntu i can't figure it out - Page 2

post #11 of 21
kk so:

get a blank cd, preferabally rw so you can re write it later, pop it in your pc while in windows, create a bootable cd with the ubuntu iso image on it.

then does as i posted earlier about boot priority

FYI just in case - i just installed Kubuntu on one of my lappys (64-bit ver) and first off i had to use it as a live cd then install from within the *live* environment.

Argh- It SHOULD be already bootable.

Take that cd. Put it in your CD drive. Restart your computer. It it goes straight to windows, you have to enable CD booting before hard drive in your BIOS..

This is simple. Dont bash something you have never tried..

And installing windows THROUGH Xp is IMPOSSIBLE.. (For standard linux)

fyi - you have to do the same things to install windows, it isn't that linux is user unfriendly

you complain because linux is so hard to install because you try in windows - yet you have to do the same to install Vista!

And the install process in most newer Linux distros is SUPER easy. I don't know about vista, heard it now has a graphic installer, but compared to XP its a breeze.

Fine tommorow i will format my whole partition with RC-2 installed on it and then try again. Can u guys plz give me an idea what the best Linux distro is. Has to be shinny. I love shinny like Hobo's fedora core. I like ur screen shots. And easy for me to figure out. And supported widley so i can get software for it and not have to scavange the universe for it.
