Ubuntu install suggestions:
Hello there. I just downloaded Ubuntu 7.10 beta and want to install it on my machine. The problem is that I have Windows 2000, XP and XP Professional installed on one machine and don't want my data to be corrupted as a result of a foolish install. So I turned to the Linux forums for help.
My rig: AMD Athlon 64 3500+
1 IDE HD 40GB <------ Single Partition: Windows 2000
1 SATA HD 200GB <--- Partition 1: Windows XP. Partition 2: XP Pro
ATI X800 Pro
I thought of partitioning my IDE hd to install Ubuntu on it but I don't know if I should. I'm also aware I need to have a swap partition (which I have no clue what that is) and need help with that. So would anyone help me with this installation? Thanks! :P
