which is best


i installed for the first time inside windows verse the grub loader cause i was not sure how to do that it seem simple but best not do it unless im sure. i was just wondering the pros and cons for this type installation.

this is a first of many but i figure b4 i get heavy into it i want to have it installed the best way for future things....and by the way is it worth the upgrade to 9.0

Version 9.0 of what? And you may have to rephrase part of that, what you're trying to say didn't really come across

If you are unsure of anything around running Linux, then rather run it from a LiveDVD until you get used to it. That way you don't mess up your existing system.
