Re: Howto: Install Ubuntu without a CD
My IBM X40 arrived yesterday. Even though I've been using Ubuntu -- actually, Kubuntu -- pretty much exclusively since September, I almost hate to wipe out the XP install. It includes a full install of MS Office Professional. But I'm going to do it.
One more question -- well, maybe just one more: Instead of giving you an XP CD with this system, IBM has created a hidden partition from which it's possible possible to restore the OS if necessary.
As I said, I'm not looking to create a dual-boot system, but I wonder if it's possible to preserve this hidden partition while doing an Ubuntu-only install.
Thanks in advance,
