Okay so I just downloaded Ubuntu 64bit dual. So I like all the features and everything. I was wondering whats all the stuff I would need to know. Because i'm like a Windows user and it took me 5 minutes to find were Applications were. Also is there a way I can run flash on here?

If you have problems booting...

Be sure that you have burned the downloaded file as an ISO image file. If your Windows burner program makes that difficult to do, here is a program that makes it easy.

You will soon need to know at least the basics of the terminal and commands.

I downloaded Ubuntu yesterday it didn't work. So I downloaded again and reinstalled and it worked.
Yes the commands which I know nothing about! I'll be sure to go to that site.
After I manage to configure my webcam/microphone. As I managed to get flash 20 minutes after install on 64bit.

Be warned...

Configuring a webcam or a microphone is sometimes not so simple and not so easy as configuring much of the rest of linux. Post back in a new thread if you run into problems. Remember to post all the details if you do. Good Luck
