The last couple of months I have been using the Ubuntu Live CD casually just to get a feel for things. Ive finally decided to take the leap... I'm trying to install Hardy Heron on my laptop, dual booting with Vista Home Basic....however I seem to have hit a snag! I was following the step-by-step instructions over at http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/installing , however the screen shots there indicate that during the 'Prepare disk space' phase there are supposed to be four options
1) Guided - resize
2) Guided - Use Entire Disk
3) Guided use the largest continuous free space
However on the install screen here on my laptop I only see TWO options
1) Guided - use entire disk
So what gives? I don't want to overwrite Vista and I have no clue as to how to go about a Manual setup!!
