This tutorial will get you started with Ubuntu inno time so that you too can start experiencing the power of Linux systems.We will discuss how to do a dual-boot install with Windows and Ubuntu. This means that bothoperating systems will be installed on the same computer. This tutorial assumes you are alreadyrunning a Microsoft Windows system.Performing the Ubuntu installation is very easy.
