Partition help while installing Ubuntu
i have windows XP now and 3 partitions (5gb, 35gb and 40gb). i have data in my 35gb and 40gb partition whereas the 5gb partition is only for windows. now i plan to install Ubuntu, i have two options now:
1- move all my data to a portable disk, format my HDD, install Ubuntu, make partitions with GParted and then move all my data back. but this is lengthy and i will have to borrow the portable drive also, from a friend.
2- install Ubuntu on my 5gb partition, i want to delete XP forever and let the other partitions be there and start using my pc.
i am not sure if during installation i can format my 5gb partition and install Ubuntu on it. like we do it during windows installation. is it possible in Ubuntu?
