Hi Folks,

Is there a standard method for migrating from Vista to Ubuntu. What I mean is a process which will install Ubuntu and automatically migrate your user accounts and their files?
cd
...Or is it a case of just dumping relevant files to CD Rom, installing Ubuntu and the re-installing you users files after setting up their accounts?

Help and Advice for migrating from vista is much appreciated,
nictu.

you'll be able to import accounts, that's only their data sindce the configuration is very different between windoze and linux.

its at the end of the installation wizard that you'll see a choice about what accounts you want to copy to ubuntu.
