January 27th, 2009, 05:42 PM
I have a Sony Vaio pcg-sr7k laptop and want to put Ubuntu on it. It will boot from its external cd rom drive which is attached by a pc card, but the live cd created from the Ubuntu iso hangs during installation. I have win xp running in a 10 gig partition and have about 30 gig unallocated. Will wubi install Ubuntu and give me a dual boot configuration?

if it is only 128 then no go :(
you may try xubuntu, it runs on 64 meg, or puppy linux (quite cute)
