So I'm a Linux noob, can I get some help?
I am currently using a brand new install of Windows XP pro after a long time of crappy computing with my old version of XP. During the time I was trying to find an install disc, I stumbled upon Linux and decided to try it. I downloaded Ubuntu, made a CD and popped it in. But whenever I hit %100 on the installation, it says the computer's temp has reached capacity and it shuts down. This is odd; because I'm blowing air directly into the machine via a computer fan. So that's my main question: how do I get it to finish installing? (I think it has something to do with using NTFS?) :confused: I also gave my entire hard drives to Windows XP, so how can I make a partition? I have more than 10 gigs of space for Ubuntu primed for use.
Also, when I finish installation, will I be able to install my desktop adapter into Ubuntu? The product is a DWA-552 Xtreme N Desktop Adapter from D-Link (I would post the product page directly but I need 15 posts to do that. Search DWA-552 on google and the first link shoulddo it.)
Thanks for any advice. :D
