from windows go to control panel,administrative tools, computer management,disk management. from there you can delete/format partitions. then just boot and install ubuntu from cd. should pick up windows from the bootloader
I'm a newbie when it come to linux so help this confused one out. OK. I'm running Fedora 7 and Xp dual booted and want to replace Fedora with ubuntu without reinstalling Xp. Can this be done and If so how. Do I need to remove Fedora 1st .How do I safely go about this?
Welcome to the forums. :)
You can use the same partitions for Ubuntu and just install it right over Fedora. No need to remove Fedora first. The installer won't touch your XP install unless you tell it to.
