    Help, Ubuntu


    Help,
    I'm a newbie in Linux world. I want to install Ubuntu Desktop on my Acer Aspire 4530 (AMD Turion 64, 2 ghz). But then I'm always stuck in the busybox. What happens? What should I do?

    Simple answer:

    Back-up.

    If you back your stuff up you should be safe. Then you can try to get a dual boot working or something like that by changing the partition table. It's not really difficult, as long as you shrink your existing partitions, make a partition mounted at / and install your stuff. GRUB comes with Ubuntu and it will probably find Windows automatically. If it doesn't you can post another thread on the forums, but please note that if you use google, you'll get pretty far anyway in that case.
