    Uninstall windows XP Install Ubuntu


    I have an old laptop that I would like to uninstall windows and install ubuntu as the only os. How do I go about unplugging from the windows matrix?

    I have ubuntu on a disc that I can boot from already.

    How old is the laptop? If it's got a small HDD and minimal RAM (256 or less) you'd probly be happier with Xubuntu. It's still Ubuntu underneath but uses Xfce, a lighter desktop. From what I've seen it's just as nice on the eyes as GNOME.
    Also, while the LiveCD is very handy for checking to see if your laptop will work correctly or not, the "alternate install" CD is more reliable when installing to a PC with 256 RAM or less. Don't worry, the alternate install is the same text-based interface as was used for the Breezy release. Millions of people - well, I don't know about millions but lots and lots - got thru it. I've been suggesting 6.06 (Dapper) but you might want to try 6.10 (Edgy). Edgy was just released a few days ago.
