thank you....just one more question
Thank you very much for your reply, I appreciate it. Another problem I have with the installation is related to partitioning the hard drive disk. I have already made a 10GB space for ubuntu (ext2), using PartitionMagic, and I don't know what to do. I am sure that I don't want to completely erase my 40GB hard drive, so I selected the option where I get to manually partition the hard drive. What am I exactly do here? I just have no clue.
Thanx in advance.
* what is exactly a root partition? it actually tells me that i have no root partition and i should make one during the partition process. how do i even make root partition?
