I am a newbie. How do I get started? I have Windows xp, and would like to run Ubuntu as well. I have downloaded Ubuntu to a memory stick, to a DVD-RW, and to 'Programs' on 'My Computer'. It downloads to 'My Computer' as "pagefiles.sys'. When I try to open from any source, I get the message:
This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Crate an association in Folder Options control panel.
None of the options offered allow me to open Ubuntu.
How do I get it to operate as my operating system? What do I do? I do not understand many of the term I see used in the Q & A sections.
