I no longer want windows on this HP Laptop. I have bought the Ubuntu DVD from the Linux Shop, but I am unsure of the installation procedure. I know this sounds a bit juvenile but I am brand new to Linux and would be grateful for some help please.
@HomerSimpson I thank you for your reply, however my knowledge of open source is almost non existent. I don't know what the live environment is. I bought Ubuntu DVD and thought that all I had to do was put it in the cd player and it would automatically boot up like windows. If you could explain the live environment to me. I will certainly give it a go before trying anything else.
