Edubuntu is an operating system on it's own so if you want to install it on an existing Ubuntu-install you can use a vm like VirtualBox.
If it's specific Edubuntu-software you want, you can also choose to install those packages in your Ubuntu install. Because as far as I know Edubuntu is the same as Ubuntu except it has another set of default packages installed. Like educational games etc..

Yes, the addon stuff comes as a Add/Remove app and you download that. You can get the addon for Hardy from the Edubuntu download page if you hunt for it.

Hi ravi_buz.

Just burn the cd, put it in the drive, and it will let you install the packages into your computer.

Apparently these programs are already in the add and remove.

In education.
