Dear David Clinton,

Thank you very much for your information. I've tried to install the Ubuntu 
program/OS but I can't make the Ubuntu CD to boot up the computer. Is it because 
I still use the XP OS ? I use Infra Recorder from XP. Is it a wrong method ? Or 
is it another flaw ?
Would you be so kind to teach me the steps to make dual OS and making the Boot 
CD for the UBuntu disc. The Ubuntu OS won't start. There is not any screen to 
choose which OS I prefer.
I think I can't thank you all enough since I feel so most welcome in this 
community. It seems the whole community eager to help me to solve my problem. 
Please do forgive my ignorance in this Ubuntu OS. TQ. I promise you all not to 
give up in trying this.

Best Regards,
Dibya Hutama

You can install on the same hard drive. When you boot the computer with
the CD in the drive, it will offer you a choice of how to partition your
disk. One option is to leave XP intact and create a new partition for
Ubuntu. You can then choose which session to run every time you boot.

Ubuntu comes with OpenOffice which is very competitive with Office (we
use it exclusively in our school).

For audio, you can install Audacity (it is free - you can find it once
you are up and running in Ubuntu in Synaptic). For video, try the PiTiVi
movie editor - also free.

If they aren't automatically installed (I can't remember) you can get
them via system/admin/synaptic.
Good luck!
David Clinton
