im getting ready to dual boot my machine (currently running windows 7) with ubuntu.

my HD is a 60GB SSD with 15GB free space.

what is the correct way to install ubuntu on this? is it any diffrent because its a SSD?

ive seen peoples suggestions where it says to shrink the HD space in windows first, then when installing ubuntu, you manually set the HD space to use for swap and the install.

ive also seen suggestions, where you can let the ubuntu install set the HD space and swap to use.

is there a definitive answer out there? thanks
