Most computers we use have Windows on them. Most have Windows XP. But what if you need to run something in Linux and it needs to actually be installed on a computer? For most people who aren't total geeks, it seems like a daunting task. But not anymore! Just follow this Instructable and you will have a working Linux distribution up and running in less than an hour, without losing any of your Windows information! You also don't have to spent a single dollar. This was tested on a real computer, not a VMware machine. This would probably work exactly the same on Windows Vista, but I haven't tested it.
If you have any questions or problems during the installation, just post a comment.
If you have a USB wi-fi adapter, it will work in version 8.10 and above.
Also, this is my first Instructable!
Note: This was originally done using this guide
. I just put it into Instructables. It's pretty much the same, but I've done it on a real computer, and APC did it in VMware.
This instructable was newly updated, in the old version I used Ubuntu version 8.04, and now I'm using 9.04!
