I've a hard disk that consist of two partitions, that known as c and d, and I want to install a Ubuntu in one of the existing partition while not erasing the other partition.
What I've counter is, when i want to install it, either it will erase all partition and then install it or it will create another partition.
So how i want to install the Ubuntu in the existing partition either in c or d without erasing the other partition or create new partition....?

The easiest way is probably to do the first step in Windows.

So, in Windows, move everything you want to keep off D onto C or
something. Then run Disk Manager (assuming you're using XP) - Start |
Run | diskmgmt.msc

Select the D drive - and make very very sure that it *IS* the D drive,
not the C drive - and delete it. Save the changes and reboot. Check
that Windows still boots and runs off C. So long as it's OK, reboot
with your Ubuntu CD and get it to use the free space.

I thought Ubuntu gave you an manual option to setup the hard drive
partition, which allowed for two systems on two separate partition. I know
ive done it.

There is another company that going down the same road as Microsoft and that
Apple they have started doing the same thing. Being secretive and in some
case anti-competitive.  Maybe  the EU commission might need to look into
them. That would give the big A a wake call.

Morning All,

I have an ubuntu machine that I am running Boxee on, and I also have a 250GB
IDE drive in a network caddy. The caddy is unreliable, so am considering
moving the disk into the PC (it just has media on it). If I were to plug the
drive into the PC and switch on, would it automount, or would it need adding
to /etc/fstab manually?

Thanks,

Steve Garton
