I am new to Linux [environment]. I need to use Ubuntu for some software development. I've created a live USB from the iso image. Is it possible to use it for development purpose?
If not, I need some help with the installation. My system configuration is:
Intel Core 2 Duo
Windows XP SP3
I have two partitions, one for Windows (20GB) and another for data (120GB). I was trying to install Ubuntu alongside Windows but i don't want to lose any data.
I downloaded Ubuntu 13.04 from the site and was trying to install it. After selecting the option of "install alongside windows", it's asking to resize the partition. Also it is showing the 20GB Windows partition second to the 120GB partition where I keep the data.
I don't want to lose the XP or any of my data. Also, if you could guide me to where I can get my hands on some of the basic Unix commands, I'll be needing those.
