Hi,
I have a partition of 10Gb for Windows XP and have made another partition of 5Gb to install Xubuntu. I'd like to know what option to choose when using graphical install of Xubuntu so I can get dual boot. Is it guided install or manual? I don't want to lose any existing info Windows XP info.

I am new to linux,
Many thanks.:)

As long as you install windows 1st, then ubuntu, it should all work out fine. Guided or manual install, wont matter. Just make sure your careful when it come to the partitioning.

There is a nice guide from ubuntu-
