How do I install ubuntu or kubuntu on a build system?
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... 044AAnVWon

My HDD went AWOL on me and so I just reformatted it in FAT32 so I can use it
with either ubuntu or kubuntu. I put the newly reformatted HDD into a computer I
pieced together. So there is no existing os and no device drivers. Step by step,
how should I go about installing the Linux os ubuntu or kubuntu. Best answer
goes to the one that works.

Ditto on the Ubuntu answers which would be best for a desktop or notebook or
laptop or netbook. The Ubuntu Netbook Edition is for all the others except
desktop naturally. One thing I would add to answers is that the necessary
drivers are in the Linux OS (operating system) just like Windows would install.
You're okay there and good to go. FIRST - I would check the manufacturer for any
drivers thy would have that may be model specific. You did not mention if
desktop or laptop/notebook/netbook which may require a BIOS flash upgrade to
have it boot appropriately- taking care of the boot sector thingies first so the
machine is ready. Go to the mainframe manufacturer you are using.

If the disk is wiped and a regular one it would be 32bit as opposed to the
larger 64bit which you should have noticed at purchase. If you had a regular pc
then it is the regular 32bit.

So get the right stuff and the other point is if say you had a virus damaged
windows 'puter and decided to install Linux (I did on a netbook) - Linux gives
the options of wiping the disk and install Linux only, or seting a dual boot
with running both Linux and windows which does not apply here except to say
Linux would have wiped it for you as you are set to go now with that task done -
which only takes seconds to a minute with Linux anyway. You might want to do
that anyway to be sure, and be confident Linux takes no crap and will make sure
for you and install is automatic with a few clicks and in minutes to a half hour
at best. Rather eloquent and very nice system you will fall n love with in
seconds !

Ubuntu is most popular and for good reason ! Everyone loves this "flavor" of
Linux distros. You use the USB Drive thumbdrive to install netbook dition and
otherwise you burn the Linux to a CD for desktop CD drawer pop it in install.

You will need an ISO ware to burn it to CD....

InfraRecorder

InfraRecorder is a free CD/DVD burning solution for Microsoft Windows. It offers
a wide range of powerful features; all through an easy to use application
interface and Windows Explorer integration. [Record disc images (ISO and
BIN/CUE) ].

ISO Recorder

Your CDs have to be converted to ISO files. That is not as hard as it sounds.
Programs like Nero can do it, but there is another free tool for XP that will
let you create ISO files in a flash. Welcome to the ISO Recorder download page.
ISO Recorder is a tool (power toy) for Windows XP, 2003 and now Windows Vista,
that allows (depending on the Windows version) to burn CD and DVD images (DVD
support is only available on Windows Vista), copy disks, make images of the
existing data CDs and DVDs and create ISO images from a content of a disk
folder. ISO Recorder has been conceived during Windows XP beta program, when
Microsoft for the first time started distributing new OS builds as ISO images.
Even though the new OS had CD-burning support (by Roxio), it did not have an
ability to record an image. ISO Recorder has filled this need and has been one
of the poular Windows downloads ever since.

Active ISO Burner (License - free)
http://download.cnet.com/Active-ISO-Bur ... 02452.html
Active ISO Burner will allow you to burn an ISO image file to CD-R, CD-RW,
DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+R DL(Dual Layer), DVD-RW and DVD+RW (including double layer,
DL). Active ISO Burner software accepts command line parameters to automate ISO
images burning process.

TIP: Once you have installed Linux you need visit the Update Center you click at
System tab. This is like Windows Updates and to get her running there are all
the Updates kind of like installing like Service Pack One on Windows. Get this
done as first task as you can not use like the 33,000 plus free softwares until
your Linux is brought up to date. (Called Software Repository all free for
download). Various Updates and Upgrades to the basic system with security
patches are done at first run. ALWAYS install anyhing from Update Center that is
security important like it would be with Windows Updates whena security hole
patch is released.

TIP: ISO Image simply means an operating system on a CD/DVD and in a system
restore operation or bck up it is a lesser "system snapshot" restore - other.
Brn your ISO Image of Linux pop it in and go.
