How about that - obviously too long since I used the "normal" install CD for Ubuntu.
@saxonpig: you should be right with that - just stay away from the "Install" icon. Use the applications via the menu at the top.
If you want to install, use the Vista partitioner to shrink its partition and leave some unallocated space for your Linux system.
And don't interrupt the install ....
(and yes @b0uncer, I was polite - it was for the 7.10 Beta installer. Maybe they got too many)
