    Ubuntu installation is not a great issue. At first install it in the C: drive, which will get formatted into Ext4. Then format the other partitions to Ext4 after installation. Get the netbook version for you laptop…

    If it is older computer, use Mint Linux version 5 to start out with. It is Ubuntu based and some files have been included that Ubunt won’t install because they are proprietary hardware drivers. It will boot as a LiveCD so this will allow you to see if it can be installed. Linux does not work on all computers for one reason or another. When you choose to install you can choose use the whole partition or share it with Linux, but that may require you to use the install to create the partition, which makes the computer dual boot. You can use the desktop or the netbook versions, the netbook version loads less files, but you can add just as many files as the desktop uses.
