Hey all, I'm just getting into Linux and trying to install ubuntu on my machine. I couldn't exactly find what I was looking for so hopefully this thread will generate some help.

I currently have a machine with 3 drives, one with my xp os and most of my programs, one is essentially just sitting blank for right now as I'm about to replace it, and one with my games/media/etc on it.

I ran the installer from the xubuntu live cd, and it's attempting to install linux on my media drive, however I want it on the same drive as my windows install, and to let linux use any programs it can that are already installed.

Can anyone tell me how I would go about doing this? My os drive is a 40 gig with about 5.75 gig of free space. The xubuntu minimum free space requirement is 1.5 gig, so I know that shouldn't be a problem. Thanks.
