Question about ValuSoft Ubuntu Linux for PC, Mac, Linux
Windows XP SP1 is not secure I can see my Ubuntu data files under windows.I need to remove windows and just use Ubuntu. How can I do this ?
Here is what you need to do:
1. Open 'GParted'. From the menus: System -> Administration -> GParted
2. Right click on the ntfs partition and select 'delete'
3. Right click on this deleted partition and select 'Format to' and select ext3. This should accomplish what you want.
If GParted is not installed, then open a terminal window and type
sudo apt-get install gparted
And then proceed with steps 1-3 specified above.
PS: Backup any data you need from the WinXP partition before you do this.Alternately, instead of formatting the XP partition to ext3, you could do this:
Using gparted, as described above:
Right click the XP partition and click delete.
Right click the Ubuntu partition and click resize
In the resize dialogue, change the settings to that it is as big as possible.
Click apply changes.
This is riskyer, so BACK UP EVERYTHING!!!!!! I do not take responsibility for lost data.
This however will be closer to "unpartitioning" the drive, what was suggested above will still result in it being split into two partitions, they will just both be linux partitions.

You have to download ubuntu here:
Then burn the file ( it's an iso) with a burning program like Nero or whatever you have available.
That's the easiest way.
