    Question Ubuntu with Windows XP on Dell Inspiron 1520


    I've never dealt with Linux/Ubuntu before. I'm a complete newbie in this sphere. However, I got interested in the OS and recently I decided to give it a try. I have DELL INSPIRON 1520 laptop with Windows XP installed on it. I watched lots of videos, read lots of articles and found out that people face lots of issues when installing Ubuntu on the following laptop. Before installing it I have some questions.
    1. How can I install Ubuntu by using Windows XP(and without damaging XP itself)I'd like to use dual boot..
    2. After installing Ubuntu do I have to install any drivers ?
    3. If I do - where can I download those ?
    4. Do I need to configure the hardware for my laptop to function properly.. ?

    Thank you in advance

    BTW, planning to install Ubuntu 8.04.3 32 bit Desktop version
