hello, I'm new to ubuntu and don't know very much about computers in general. I have tried to download ubuntu 12.04 from the ubuntu website and install it alongside windows xp in its own partition. I think it downloaded, I have a partition (d) 38.9 gb free space and 2.7 gb used during this download attempt. Now when I boot my computer it still goes directly to xp. It doesn't give me the option to boot my (d) partition. Shouldn't I see a screen that allows me a choice of partitions. Also, my bios boot priority says 1:usb hdd, 2:usb fdd, 3:usbcdrom, 4:ata hdd0, 5ci lan . I'm not trying to boot from usb.n my usb drive, would it. I've been trying to do this for about 3 days now and could sure use some help.
