I need to install Ubuntu inside of Windows XP, but the installer ask me to enter an (installation size) that should vary between 3 to 30GBs. I have an internal hard disk of 60GBs with 30GBs free. My question is if I allocated 30GBs for Ubuntu, would I be able to use this space in both Windows and Ubuntu? The only reason that I’m using the Wubi method is because I don’t wand to lose space from portioning the hard drive.
Thank you so much for your answer, you actually helped a lot… 10GBs sounds good for a start. But my concern is that I only have 30GBs of free space and I want to allocate as much space as possible for Ubuntu but at the same, I want to be able to use Windows and store files in it. So assuming that I allocated, say 20GBs for Ubuntu, now, If I ran out of space in Windows, will I be able to use some of the space that was allocated for Ubuntu in Windows or the space that I allocate for it will be fixed and not accessible just like a partition?
