Hi, I have downloaded and extracted desktop version and am ready to install Ubuntu.
1. Can I run ubuntu and Windows XP at the same time and toggle between the 2?
2. Do I need to have a separate security system for Ubuntu (anti spyware anti virus etc.)?
3. How easy is it to transfer settings browser and email?

you will need to burn the .ISO file (image) that you downloaded to a CD but after you have done that you can simply put the disk in and run Ubuntu inside Windows. You can install a fire wall and anti virus program if you decide to permanently install Ubuntu but for running it inside Windows you should be relatively safe.
