Im currently using the boot disk for Ubuntu(and soon Mint) but Im kinda clueless as to how i specify for windows and mint. Im only using Windows for school (specifically microsoft onenote) and i kinda hate it most of the time. So i want to use Mint at home for almost everything (at least till the google OS comes out ) how does one specify areas at installation?

cheers

Not quite sure what you mean. You could do a dual boot so you can choose what operating system you want to use when you turn your computer on.

yes. although, i just read that with mint, you can install it like an application to windows so you just click the icon and go right to mint. I have off tomorrow so i have something to work on now

Not sure about Mint, but I know Ubuntu has a very easy to understand partitioner and GRUB installer built into it. It's basically just run it, tell the computer how large to make the partitions, and go.



hrmmm. wasnt that fun when i tried it early today. ill have to look at it again.


On the Ubuntu installer it says "no root file system is defined"

I went through the portioning menu, but that didnt do it. help?

(btw, i dont i think i even want to go to the ubuntu help)

Is Mint a version of Linux? I haven't been keeping up with those since my Linux class in high school. But assuming it's an operating system, you should be able to use partitioning software that's included in almost all boot disks to specify how much space to allot to each operating system.
