I currently have a pc with two physical disks. One disk has XP and I want to install Ubuntu Studio onto the other physical disk to create a dual boot system

Can I achieve this with the Ubuntu Studio text based installer and which options do I choose? Will it be easier to install a different flavour of Ubuntu and then 'upgrade' to studio?

Cheers

The text based installer is usable, but not as user friendly as the regular Ubuntu installer. If you are not familiar with it, but want to try, I suggest practicing first in virtual box. The easiest partitioning option is to use the entire hdd. Here is a good site to illustrate the text installer in action-> http://members.iinet.net/~herman546/index.html.

Thanks, I took the plunge and used the text installer and it worked absolutely fine.
