I have a very crappy Acer Aspire and I can to switch out the internal hard drive for a better one. What's the easiest way to get Ubuntu on the new drive if it doesn't have an OS at all and the Acer came with no reboot CDs?

Easy-peasy, even easier than replacing an existing OS. What are "reboot CDs", by the way?

Reboot CD=Recovery CD aka System restore discs. – Tom Brossman Aug 8 '12 at 21:58
Well, the OP does not need any "Reboot CDs" then, they contain Windows anyway. – Sergey Aug 8 '12 at 22:04
