Here's how to install Ubuntu:

It does not matter which operating system you currently have installed. You can replace Xandros entirely by telling the Ubuntu installer to use the entire disk.

slow down firstly welcome to LQ im only guessing because you havent really given a great deal of info what laptop/netbook/pc you have generally xandros came as standard with the asus eee pc if thats what you have take a look at the above url some really interesting stuff there the reasn i say slow down is ubuntu isnt the only distro that will fit if you do a lot of browsing social networking stuff and play media then moblin 2.1 final would be a very good choice very fast boot up and shut down if you are going to use mobile broadband then get vodafone with most distros it will work out of the box and the ones that it doesnt you can usually get from the betavine project on source forge ubuntu is good ive just put 10.04 on my asus its nice although im not overkeen on the netbook remix and prefer the straight ubuntu but play around with other distros if you get a coffee in mcdonalds you can use there wifi and dwnload a different distro everyday pupeee is good crunchbang #! even centos will install without any problems although its slow at booting up yu can open xandros up from the standard easy mode to the full linux system all this though is assuming your on an asus if possible when you ask a question try and give as much detail as poss ie make model hardware it makes it easier to understand the full issue and then be able to give you accurate advice just out of interest ubuntu installs on most systems trouble free but where possible try the live cd/usb first until your happy then do a full install good luck oh yeh i forgot the new knoppix 6.3 is well impressive the best default distro ive ever seen out the box
