Basically, I have been advised by a friend to uninstall windows and install linux. I want to do this but there is one small problem. I have 26 gigabytes of photographs on my computer. I am using a dual core, 500 gig disk. I don't have an external drive so (and forgive me if this is a total newbie question) I was wondering if it is at all possible to create a new partition that i can copy this 26 gigs of photos to and then remove windows from the remainder of the disk?
I agreed with tink's ethos of enabling someone to help themselves rather than giving them the turn key solutions so I am hoping people can just point me in the right direction if this is possible to do.
