First time Kubuntu
I just installed Kubuntu on a 500gb external that i bought to back up data since my school laptop can no longer boot windows. Is there a way to install Kubuntu, and i'm think of Xubuntu too, to the directory sda1\kubuntu and be able to create folders in sda1\ for use a storage while in kubuntu and when the external is plugged into a windows XP PC?
