    If you download the ISO file for Ubuntu, you'll need to burn it to a blank disk as an image (that's important - check the burning link above), then boot your machine with that disk in the CD/DVD drive just like you would a Windows installation disk.

    Ubuntu's main installer comes on their liveCD, but they also have an "alternate installer" that is a text only version. That's the one I use because the liveCD usually gives me some problems.

    If you don't have a CD/DVD drive, you can use UNetbootin to get Ubuntu or some other distro installed:

    Thanks. I think I'm starting to figure this out.
