dual booting questions "help=rep" - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Back everything up first! Just stick the disk in the drive and boot it up. Ubuntu really helps you through the steps. It uses gparted to redo the partitions during install. There's an easy way and a hard way. Easy way is very easy, you just slide the bar to whatever amount you want changed. Harder way give you more control, which I like because I partition out 20gb for ubuntu and that's still too much. For the harder way follow Aardobard. Oh and you can always access the xp partition while in ubuntu, but not that other way around, and it doesn't work so well either way with vista.

screw it lol

first of all, i don't have any backup software or hardware
second of all, i ran into some troubles in the install
so i'll stick with xp right now, and try out linux when i have the available resources.

btw, why install 8.04 and not 8.1?
