    How to Install Ubuntu on Laptop?

    Hey everyone!

    I'm a complete Ubuntu amateur and am interested in installing Ubuntu on a laptop (Acer Aspire 5570) I have lying around and I am wondering how I should go about it. I don't want to dual boot, so what is the best way to format and install Ubuntu on the HDD? I don't have the Windows XP CD anymore either.

    Any help will be great!
    Cheers.

    Just download and burn the iso to disc and let the install disc format the hard drive for you. Just that simple...

    Good Luck.
