Re: Help on installing Ubuntu on Inspiron 700M
Another thing that you can do is set Ubuntu to install in the free space of the hard drive. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DEFRAG YOUR WINDOWS PARTITION FIRST! Failure to defrag first CAN result in data loss. Ubuntu will load its own bootloader, allowing you to choose between either Ubuntu or Windows XP with ease (some additional work needed, from what I've seen, to make it work with Vista).
