Can someone post a guide on how to install Ubuntu and Windows (XP or Vista) parallel to each other?

My new PC, I figure Vista will be different enough from what I'm used to that I might try out Linux on my desktop. I'm just a tad skeptical about the DRM-ification in Vista. And that's saying something as I've traditionally been a supporter of DRM.

Install Windows first, but don't make the partition the entire size of the drive, make it 5 - 10 gigs smaller.

Then install Ubuntu in that remaining space.

I did this last nite haha since I enjoy both XP and Ubuntu, Vista just ran like ball sack on my machine.

I like the fact that TrueCrypt works on both Linux and Windows, so I won't have to decrypt all my drives.

Internets LOL
 
I've been using Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server as a desktop OS for the past week or so, and it's good, but not great. I don't really like the APT package management, and I guess I want to try something else. I'm looking at a BSD distro. Which one should I pick? I want something that will teach me Unix skills and something that is customizable (ie, no preloaded packages, just a good initial installer so I can set up the partitions). Is FreeBSD what I'm looking for? What kind of an installer does it include, and does it have a dual boot feature that automatically sets up GRUB for me?

Why don't you try Fedora Core (i.e. a Red-Hat Based Distribution) instead of a Debian Based Distro.

But TBH, APT is probably the smoothest and easiest to use Package Management system I've ever came across, although in saying that I've never used BSD.

It took Vista a whole of 10 minutes to Blue-Screen on my machine after I installed it.

For me its a good mix between a bloated linux and something like slack. Not to hard, but I've had a fair share of problems here and there. The big community is nice too, easy to find answers when you need them.

Ubuntu is nice because it's a sleek prepackaged easy-2-install distro that uses a good package manager (apt).


Gentoo4lyfe. I admit tho after coming back after 2 years, setup was a pain. Still working on getting my mouse sensitivity right and wheel scroll to equal 3 lines with just x console commands and/or the xorg.conf file.
