This will be my first time installing Ubuntu, I have WinXP currently installed. Not so long ago I installed a new HDD and I made several partitions, the 1st is C: for windoz, the 2nd is 15gb, and I specifically made it that size because I wanted to install Ubuntu there but never got around to it. Not I am ready to try it but I've hit a couple of snags.
I used UUI and put Ubuntu on a flash drive. The 1st attempt was with the 64bit ver, the DL site said anything over 2gb it was recommended. It hung on what looked like an initialization screen in a section that was titled "Trace Call:". Now I am trying the 32bit version and I'd like to know a few things before I continue with the installation.
1. Which format is best? Ext4? The 2nd partition is currently NTFS
2. What are "mount points"?
3. If I select the 2nd partition to install Ubuntu, what mount point should I use?
