I have 2 computers that I assembled. One is the main computer that I use for my personal use and the other is for just to try stuff on. Both run Windows XP Professional and both computers have 2 internal hard drives. I want to install Ubuntu on the secondary computer. My question is this: How can/do I install Ubuntu from a clean start? I wan to wipe clean Windows XP Professional. When I installed Windows XP Professional, I formatted the hard drives using NTFS. I do have Ubuntu 7.04 & 7.10 on CD. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not that acquainted with Ubuntu but if it gives you the choice use the whole hard drive, it will automatically set up new partitions to it's liking. If it doesn't give you the choice just remove the primatry partition, then it will see a blank drive and format and install over everything.
