Step 1. Download the Ubuntu installer
Step 2. Mount the installer image onto a blank disk and burn it. This is your installation disk.
Step 3. Insert your installation disk into a CD-ROM drive and reboot the computer. The Ubuntu installer will boot and ask you to partition your hard disk. The automatic partitioning mode is recommended because it is easy, and the vast majority of computer users shouldn't need to configure anything but partition size.
Step 4. Use the sliding bar between the two partitions to allocate disk space as you see fit, then commence the resizing operation.
Step 5. Enter your user name, password, language, time zone and other information to configure Ubuntu. Write down the user name and password you select, because without them you will not be able to use Ubuntu.
Step 6. Choose the operating system you want to use. After Ubuntu is fully installed and configured, your computer will reboot. A screen called the "GRUB Menu" will come on screen with a list of operating systems you can boot. Windows XP is usually on the very bottom of the list. You may now select either Windows XP or Ubuntu every time you boot up your computer.

Hi,

You can install the Linux operating system by just running the live CD and then while installing select the advance and over there select the partition. If you don't want to install like that then from the 9.10 version onwards of Ubuntu you can install Ubuntu by directly clicking on the the Ubuntu setup.exe file. It will install the Ubuntu as an software it is really easy try it out.

for beginners, much better if you follow arckson advice.

1. download Ubuntu 10.04 here: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download
2. Burn the ISO in a CD or mount it using powerISO, daemon tools or, Magic ISO that you can find here : http://www.magiciso.com/
3. Install Ubuntu just like any other software, that is if you already inserted the disk that you have burned or mount it using the softwares mentioned above.
4. after the installation has been finish, you have now a dual boot system.

If you want you can further research on this Linux distro using google, you can try, opensuse, xandros, kubuntu, DSL(Damn Small linux) and etc etc..

But as for me, i like Ubuntu the most, then Opensuse, last kubuntu.
