I ask my last question and i leave you in peace what video card would you recomend ?
If you have a AMD processor you may want to go with a Radeon graphics card.
My Viao has an Intel processor and I have a Radeon card.

I had windows XP on this machine but I want to just get rid of it and launch my Linux adventure but I am running in the situation that even though I follow all the instructions in the download page of Ubuntu.com, something is just not doing what it is suppossed to. After the downloading is done, and I get the icon for the application for Linux and click on it, nothing happens. Should I just format the driver, buy or burn a Linux CD or should I just keep looking around for a better download?

Any advice would be really appreciated.

PS. The reason I am posting this problem here is because I could not find a way of posting my questions in a new thread. I apologize for this inconvenience.
I encourage you to start your own thread; however w/o knowing the spec's of your computer and what method you are using to install Ubuntu it's
hard to advise you.
After you download the image from the Ubuntu website you have to burn that downloaded image to a brand new CD/DVD and than installtion should be a success for you. Set in your BIOS the boot order for your computer to boot to the CDROM drive to see the LINUX CD and than after the CD boots all the way. Double click on the ICON of that live CD "Install Ubuntu"

Your Win's XP should have a program to burn that CD for you.

Ztcoracat: Thank you very much for your information, actually I was able to find a download of the Windows Installation and was able to get Ubuntu in my PC. The software automatically open two partitions in my Hard Drive, one for Ubuntu and another one for Windows, so I guess I am set up for now. Again thank you for your feed back.

Okay, my ubuntu is working. A little bit slugish for now but I guess it happens when you first start using it. It is getting a little bit better like if it is waking up. I am excited though, I guess it will be "Adios Windows OS" for me very soon.

It really would be best for you to start a thread of your own :-

Since your new Linux Ubuntu has just been installed the best thing you can do is update it-

Code:
apt-get update
