    Exclamation Install ubuntu on macbook, resize partition?

    Sorry for bad topic title,

    Anyway, I have a santa rosa macbook 2,2 ghz core 2 duo, with 1 gb ram and a 120 gb HD, running MacOSX 10.5.2
    My question is quite simple, how do I install ubuntu on a new partition, and get to dualboot?

    You see there's this bug in bootcamp, so I can't use that in order to create a new partition, and I don't have the cds that came with the mac here, they're in another town.

    So how do create a new partition without erasing what's allready on the HD? I have about 20 GB free btw.

    Which bootcamp bug are you talking about?
