I want to dual boot ubuntu on my XP machine and I've several questions:
How should I burn ubuntu's LiveCD file? as image or normal CD?

If I put ubuntu's LiveCD without installing it, and then removing it and restart, XP will boot up normally without any problems?

Can I install ubuntu on windows' empty partition or I have to create a new one with ubuntu installation process?

Thanks.

1. If you have downloaded the ISO burn it at the lowest speed possible, which is usually 1x, 2x, 3x or 4x.

2. Yes. The LiveCD does not modify the system in any way.

3. Again, yes. When you open the installer, at the partition setup you can opt to have Ubuntu "Partition and use that space". "Use free disk space" and various others.

Hope this helps.

The .iso file you've downloaded is the image.

The easiest way would be double click on you .iso file, change any preferences if you like, then click 'burn'

Thanks, the LiveCD is working.
Now I want to install ubuntu so I've other question:
ubuntu will automatically create the GRUB boot list with XP & ubuntu and let me choose one of them during the boot?
