I noticed that Wubi is beta, because of this, I would have to delay the
second OS installation. I will wait a bit. Thank you. Great tip!

I think Wubi does that for you, i know it is on the new version of
Ubuntu that is coming out next Thursday, although at this point you
could go ahead and use it now.  I believe it installs Ubuntu like it
would any other program on Windows.  This is probably the best way to go
about it.

Hello Lucky Ubuntu Users! 


I have a Dell laptop with Win Xp and 1 partition on it. This laptop has
very valuable information for me, personally. I was wondering if will be
able to install Ubuntu as second OS on my laptop, without reformatting
the hard drive. I need to keep the data on it intact. 


Thank you for your advice.
