Basically you need to boot from DVD and follow installation steps. If you want dualboot with windows - you should make free space on hdd, where you create partition for ubuntu. To resize windows partition you may choose "Try ubuntu without installing" from dvd boot menu, then run gparted and resize windows partition with it, and create ubuntu partition (ext4)- then reboot to dvd again and choose install. In installation process choose that new partition for install.


In this tutorial, we're going to install Ubuntu desktop onto your computer, using either your computer's DVD drive or a USB flash drive.
