Installation Choices

Assuming you’re starting with Windows, you have several options.

You can download and run Wubi, a Windows installer which creates a disk image, apparently within a folder, containing Ubuntu. An extra option is provided at boot time. Wubi doesn’t have to be burned to CD, just run like any other Windows program. Wubi is available at http://wubi.sourceforge.net/.

You can create another partition, keeping your Windows partition, and install Ubuntu there.

You can take the whole hard drive for Linux, wiping out Windows. I only have experience with this route.
