At the present XP is installed on a 20GB partition with a hard drive that has a total size of 200GB.
The 180GB that’s left is a logical drive, used for my music and movie collection.
I think there’s about 70GB free.
To install Ubuntu could I shrink the 180GB to create another partition for Ubuntu without losing any data?
Or would I have to format this 180GB partition, to make it unallocated?
I notice on the Ubuntu web site there are two options available for partitioning your drive with the installation, automatic and manual.
How do they work and more important are they safe to use.
I wouldn’t want to stuff up my windows XP, because I need Microsoft Office.
