    I have an Ispiron 1525. I put the CD in and chose try Ubuntu. Install the wireless drivers first then click install. It's a breeze, Ubuntu runs fine on both my Dell laptops.

    I agree with the above? Do you have a more specific question? Ubuntu works on pretty much any semi modern x86, powerpc, or arm based computer. As for other problems you shouldn't have many. Good Luck.

    Are you looking to dual boot or a single Ubuntu installation (which works better IMHO)
    Here's links to 3 options but I would recommend a dual boot over wubi if you're keeping windows for some reason

    To install Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron, you will need:

    -Install CD or USB
    -Hammer
    -Blowtorch

    When you have gathered these materials, come back for further instruction.

    I agree. with above. I have tried everything I can think of, and can't even get the wireless working on it. Not trying to figure out how to uninstall this so I can get my old laptop back.

    Dear "Grasshopper":


    1. This is a cautionary tale about a n00b who still pays 3 times a much as he should to get any kind of "In-Smell" "Ceek-Pee-U" for his 'puter.
    2. Any type of "In-Smell" processor carrying that infamous "Scarlett A" of 'puters ["In-Smell-Derides"] costs WAY TOO MUCH for the same amount of 'puting power. Convert, Infidel! AMD Rules, "In-Smell" is for Fooles!
    3. "In-Smell" multi-processor "Ceek-Pee-U" units actually are [as a rule] not true multi-processing units. They do not use the same back-plane for all processors in the assembly, rather multiple separate units that are wire together -- a veritable spider-web of unnecessary internal gaggles much-akin to the malformations in some n00b brains that are thought to lead to some types of Migraine Headaches. Moreover, the internals of "In-Smell" multi-processor will certainly lead to such maladies.

    Let this be a lesson to you, "Grasshopper" / Infidel!
