I'm kind of new to this sort of thing, first off.

Anyways, here's the dealio. I've recently (about 2 months ago) home-built my own computer from scratch, and am so far loving it. In case it matters, it's got an i5 processor, GTX 660 graphics card, and 8GB of RAM.

Now, at the moment, I have Windows 7 installed on it. I do not want to install Ubuntu using the windows install version - i want them to be two totally separate operating systems.

Also, here's the tricky part... At the moment, I have windows 7 installed on my SSD, and the programs and files on the HDD (my SSD is only 64GB). Therefore, I doubt I'd be able to fit both OS's on the SSD. How would I be able to install ubuntu on the side of Windows, with my hard drive configuration.

Thanks in advance.
