I have a PC with two hard-drives (C: and J
and want one to remain with Windows XP (C
(I have to use it for the moment unfortunately) and the other (J
to be the linux drive.
I used to have XP on that drive but it crashed (viruses) and so I just installed it on C: so have not uninstalled XP. So these questions arise:
1) I can't remember how to boot from J: so how do I install Ubuntu on J:?
2) I don't remember how to make J: the primary drive (soemthing to do with changing cables on the motherboard?)so how do I tell the system to boot from J: once I have ubuntu installed?;
3) How do I swtich between Windows and Ubuntu without having to open up the guts of the PC each time?
4) Is there a particular method I should use for getting rid of xp and associated junk off drive J:?
Sorry for being a dumbass. I'm not really all that bad, I just have a lousy memory.
