you dont need nothing to do it
heres how you do it
boot into windows
pop the cd in
and choose to install insde windows
you can select at boot time with no partitioning

I never got that option in Ubuntu 9.0.4 jaunty jackalope...

Hello I  really can't free up that much space i already deletied of all the programs i didn't want and ran a compress disk drive to save space in c properties and i did a disk cleanup and have only 4.45 of free space most of my space about ten gbs worth are pictures which i can't get rid of because i don't have a cd burner

how safe or online storage sights like google and amazon to put my pictures on

i have an older computer 500mhz would it work on that


I would just put the pics on a flash drive, and keep the flash drive in a safe place.  You can also back them up for free with Windows Live Sky Drive or the home version of Mozy.

      Hi i am new to this and I am very interested in doing this but the wubu link will not work at my end plus will it work with vista as I do not fancy the partition route it is o.e.m vista with no backups

      please start your own thread as some of the things could be differnt from his.

          no, not at all.  It will load the os an allow you to use it as long as the disk is there.  Thing is that you have too tell it to install to the drive.  Never messed with it though, probably want to ask in the linux thread.
