this may seem a wierd question but I'm asking it anyway!

I have a laptop with vista installed, I want to install ubuntu over it. The laptop has two sata hard drives. I understand in the install process from the installation cd I can overwrite the windows installation by choosing the "Guided - Use Whole Disk" option.

My question is a matter of semantics - 'use whole disk' emplies 1 disk hence I would like to ask, so as to be certain - "Guided - Use Whole Disk" will install ubuntu on both hard disks won't it?

If it said "Guided - Use Whole Disk/s", I wouldn't need to ask this question. I'm really not trying to be pedantic - I just want to be certain.

Better way would be to goto Manual Partitioning and then select the vista partition over which install ubuntu. Just that you have to make a swap partition.
