I tried to use wubi to install unbuntu and it came up telling me there was a conflict. The log states "Exception: Cannot download the metalink and therefore the ISO." I am lost, if any one could help me i would be eternally grateful.

Forget Wubi.. some machines have issues with it.. If you're looking to test Ubuntu and see how much you'll fall in love with it, Install virtualbox in windows and then ubuntu into virtualbox.. Vbox is compatable with windows and linux and allows you to install many os's in virtual machines.. easy to delete later if needed..

If you like it enough you can always create a dual boot situation. That's what I do
