    Ubuntu install

    Ok so I got Ubuntu working in dual boot but I had to install it twice and now have two of the same OS with Xp. How do I remove one of the Ubuntu could you write all the steps down? I have Ubuntu start up and all the recover mem things 6 of them under that I have Other OS: Xp and I think 3 more Ubuntu 9.04.
    Another question is that I also Have a netbook and put this on it but I heard about a netbook version what are the differences and if it would be the same with lower graphic and work on youtube then could you tell me how to remove The whole dual boot linux and leaf just Xp on my netbook if it is not too much to ask.

    Boot from an Ubuntu Live CD or Live USB, and use Partition Editor to delete the extra partition. You can then resize the remaining partition to fill the space, if you want.

    If you want to remove Ubuntu, be sure to restore your XP boot manager first:

    Details about the Netbook Remix are available on the ubuntu homepage; essentially, it has a few packages missing, and has a simpler user interface as default. however, you can convert from normal to netbook and vice versa.
