Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
I`ve downloaded ubuntu 8.10 frm torrentz...
how to install it without losing my existing vista
1.Repartition HD to fit Ubuntu
2. Install Ubuntu
3. Upon starting computer, select operating system (Vista or Ubuntu)
You could also use Wubi which is a program on the ubuntu 8.10 cd that allows you to install Ubuntu right from Vista and it will run just like it's an app per say. Just to warn you though, it will not run as fast and if you are installing this on a laptop it won't be able to hibernate. Also it doesn't require you to create a separate partition to install Ubuntu. This could potentially be a bad thing, depends on how you look at it.
Hope this helps!
