    Ubuntu 8.10 installation question(s)

    Hi,

    I am new to this, i have tried to install 8.10 version yesterday
    and it had not worked.

    From CD i choose the first option "demo and full install", it
    run, then i clicked "install" icon and on step 4 it showed me
    TWO options "full drive" and "manual". I had chose manual but
    had not went further since was not sure which options to choose
    for partions.

    In few hours i had tried to install it again and, surprisingly,
    on step 4 it gave THREE options "full drive with free space",
    "full drive" and "manual". Again I had chose manual but
    had not gone further: i was not sure where to set up swap.
    Should it be separate partions set up earlier or free space.

    When i run the third time, the dual-boot disappeared and
    am able to to run install. How to run this install again i am
    not sure?

    Then I have tried to install it inside Windows (second option
    on umenu). The files were copied to disk but the only exe-file
    i have is "uninstall_ubuntu.exu". When i run wubi, it says
    ubuntu is already installed, but how to run it i don't know.

    Any advice, guys.

    You should have an option to boot either Ubuntu or Windows on startup.

    This dual-boot had dissapeared after my attempt to
    install full version. Is there anyway to restore dual-boot
    or check at startup why it does not load?
