practise, practise, practise????
Since you don't have Windows installed at all at this point and since its normal to install Windows first in a dual boot, if you've got any documentation of how you installed your first Ubuntu installation, why not just install Windows first and then install Ubuntu again? I know it seems like a lot of work at first glance, but your Windows is already trashed. If you have backups of your data on Ubuntu and you haven't installed a lot of extra programs or made very many setup tweaks, reinstalling linux is a snap and a great way to learn the OS and the partitioning process, when you're a noob. I've had a few periods in the past, where I've just reloaded Ubuntu two or three times in a week in the process of getting a problem sorted out, because its just easier than banging my head against the wall on a seemingly impenetrable problem. Its a great way to become more comfortable with the whole Ubuntu thing and it makes it much less daunting to consider doing it in future as well. By the way there's a newer version coming out soon and a bit of practise in reinstalling Ubuntu might make the decision of whether to upgrade to the new Hardy Heron easier (when its a stable OS). I think most users would agree, that its better to do a complete reinstall for a newer version of the OS from scratch, than to do the upgrade thing. Just a personal opinion... Cheers, Thane
