Hey guys,

I am trying to backup my computer so I can swtich from Mandriva to Ubuntu, but am having trouble with DiskDrake. I have a portable hd I am saving stuff to, but when I try to set DiskDrake using teh Wizard Configuration, I only see the option to backup users and not to backup the system (the Backup System button is gone, i can see it but it is faded and I can't click it). Do you have any ideas? I tried to back up my system last week by burning to CD's, but had trouble and had too much to backup so I got a little harddrive to save to.

Also, I put the Live Ubuntu CD in and it didn't do anything, i was told it would. I have enough RAM, i am not sure what the problem is.
obviously i am real new at this

thanks ya'll
