Hey guys! I want to install Ubuntu on my laptop. I have Windows XP and Mandriva installed and i'd like to uninstall mandriva and run Wubi to install Ubuntu.

Can you guys please help me?

I'm using Mandriva's bootloader Grub

Thank you very much!

One way is to use a partitioning program like gparted (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/) and delete your mandriva partition and then resize your windows partition to use the unallocated space. Then run wubi.

You have to restore Windows boot loader before deleting Mandriva's partition. There are several ways to do it, but do it first, then get rid of Mandriva.
