Recently threw out older version of Ubuntu because of failure to connect to router. Then decided to try 12.10. It connects easily. Unfortunately I am not given the option to install alongside WinXP. Since the older version was so installed, I do not understand.
If I click the 'Install' icon on the desktop I get a message 'Installer has detected a mounted partition - .... unmount or not?' I do not understand the significance of this.
Can anyone please help?
Terminal info is:
