pavithran guide to install GNU / Linux

well its long time since I wrote this.
But Lemme start telling you about various & flavors of GNU/Linux available.
Debian - The best of all ! ( Not recommended for New users )
fedora- The most famous one from RedHat .
Ubuntu - The GNU/Linux for Human Beings( Highly recommended)
Open Suse- Simpler GNU/Linux from novell ( nice to look but hard in the complexity especially packages)
Lemme start with Ubuntu ..
1. Set Ur system to boot from CD . ( depends from BIOS TO BIOS)
2. boot from Ubuntu cd ( Get a free cd posted directly to your home ( No charges at all ) from
3. press enter and wait for some time ( 1-3 Minutes depending ion yopur processor and ram )
4. Use it and have a feel of linux ( Things run slow as u are running an OS from CD )
Do you want a faster OS ?
5. Click on the install Icon in the desktop
sleect language and select language and other settings give your username password (twice ) and other simple stuff till u come to partitioning
6. partitioning is complex .
boot using XP cd delete some "f" or "g" drive
using d key( after u delete u cant see that drive in windows before deleting move ur files to a safer place ie back up )

Then just select option "Use Free Space"
click next.
7. clicking next next will do ...
After you have your Ubuntu ready for use .. please go through

My boyfriend spend every second on his pc connected to intenet, instead of passing his time with his woman. The only conversation with him is about this boring [url=]adsense content[/url] . My personal interests are totally different and for this we are living totally separated lives. Nevermind I wi
