Sorry if I came off sounding like a smartass - there's a lot of info on those two websites. If you're a newb, it's an intimidating amount. More than I can absorb in one or two sittings!

I got a lot of use out of the book: Ubuntu From Novice to Expert (or some such thing.) It did a pretty good job of walking me through the install and getting started.

Do you want to Dual Boot Windows and Linux, or just have one OS left on the harddrive?

Do you have a Live/Desktop CD or something other?

How many partitions do you have? How big is your HDD? What are your system specs (everything h/ware related)?

Do you have a spare HDD? Are you doing this just to test it?

i am in the same boat as the thread starter.

I have an external HD and wanted to sample Ubuntu. I am intimidated by the process of partitioning your drive and dual booting

Hopefully the links provided will serve to educate me.

Thanks.
