myself donny a student, am trying to install ubuntu 6.06 as dual os along
with windows xp. and after getting the iso image and burning i started with
the process of installing ubuntu. it went on well and reached the ubuntu
desktop and it read that nautilus has quit unexpectedly and so whther i need
to inform or start once again. i followed and link where it said i could
type "apt-get dist-upgrade" but it said i had no permission and asked me if
i am root. i am not very familiar with linux os or the commands. but still
could i type in something like "su" if so wat would be the password

or else have can i ensure a smooth installation of ubuntu without affecting
my windows. would be there any tutorials where i can get by step guidance.

kindly help

thnx for any info
