Here’s another screenshot tutorial.
This one shows how to install Ubuntu Hardy (8.04) Desktop Edition on a computer. Read (rather view) the complete tutorial first, then go about installing ubuntu on your computer, with this article by your side.
If you want to know how to get Ubuntu, go here.
After this step, you may be taken to a “Migration Assistant” if you have windows XP already present on your computer. You can safely proceed further without making any changes. Just press Forward. Of course, if you want to see what it does, do it sure!
There you go! You now have a great system installed, all done manually by yourself.
If there are any questions about the procedure (like in the partitioning), feel free to ask. I always help my friends
[ Info: How I took these screenshots
I used VirtualBox and created a virtual machine on my computer. Then I installed ubuntu on it, and took screenshots of the process from my host operating system.
The pictures were edited with Gimp. ]
This is a new thing I am trying out: a screenshot tutorial! I would not write down any text in this series… just a series of pics that would explain the topic “how to get ubuntu”.
Alternatively, you can request CDs to be sent to your home. Yea, for real! I know the delivery is pretty quick, but I don’t remember (or know) the number.
Of course, you could buy the CDs from Canonical Inc. themselves. Your money will surely help them furter their services and development.
I hope this experiment of mine has been very enjoyable. But I wish to clarify one thing: this is not an insult to your intelligence. This is for those people who can see the obvious but are too shy to do it the right way.
And it also helps me propagate my religion
