Just got back to this as I am setting up a laptop to be dual boot. with
windows 7 installed and installing Kubuntu I would get an option of where to
install grub. is this where I can do the above or do I use my desktop which
has usual dual boot to go into Kubuntu and issue commands at command line
and then how do I burn to cd?
