I have a laptop that came with Windows 7 with the drive divided into two partitions, and I have saved my own data on the D: partition.
I recently grew annoyed (after comparing with a Wubi installation) on how bad the Windows Synaptics touchpad driver works. All my other computers run (K)Ubuntu, so I thought, why not replace Windows with Ubuntu? I'm wondering, will the normal Ubuntu installer keep my other partition intact if I don't do anything special in the installer? If not, how should I configure it to nuke everything but the partition with personal data?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. The Wubi installation broke down, by sudo breaking completely. Not much to do there, so I un-installed it. No thanks.
