My PC crashed a week ago and by using Multi Bios I found I could "Try Or Install Ubuntu". I have never used this before and every time I try to access my drives it says I need a root password or I need to authenticate. I have Googled these things but the answers seem aimed at experts, not noobs. I appear to be running 11.10 signed in as a "guest" but when I download 13.04, I have no idea how to install it. Can anyone help?
You can now try out Ubuntu or install it. Ubuntu 13.04 should not ask for root passwords when accessing drives.
Ubuntu is a great operating system, I don't think you will be dissapointed. Good luck!
