Not reaaly sure in which forum this should be in (read on and you will see) but I am sure It wil be moved if necessary.
OK here goes but 1st a few specs
Tosi laptop 3.2 GHZ CPU
I was attempting to intsall xubuntu 8.04 today on my laptop that has XP home on it already so I could dual boot. I downloaded the xubuntu .iso and verified hash with md5sum so far so good. When it came time to do the latter stages of the installation it hung and I had no choice but to start again. This time I reburnt the install CD at a slower speed got a bit further but still no joy.
It did however get as far as to create the new partitions (twice) so I returned to XP and deleted them.
Now I have 2 partitions on my single HDD that looks a little like this
WinXP 23.67GB and 32.21 GB Unallocated.
Now XP is complaning alot as it does not have enough disk space to run. (it has effectively only 178M overhead.
What should/can I do to return to where I was before this event and reallocate the partition for XP so I can (maybe) try the re-install of xubuntu.
Thanks in advance guys and dolls.
