I would like to be able to dual boot on my HP mini netbook using Windows 7 and Ubuntu. My only issue is that last time I checked there were sound issues that had yet to be resolved.

Where can I got to check to see if sound drivers are resolved or if it's still an issue?

Is there any danger of dual booting such as a drive locking (unable to wipe clean) if I wanted to later remove both OS's?

Thank you

Ubuntu comes as a LiveCD that can be used to test the OS (and see if the sound works) without any changes to your computer. If you are not pleased, you can remove the CD and boot into your normal OS as usual.

The HP mini doesn't have a cd drive I believe. You are going to want to use a program like UNetbootin, or CD2usb which are programs that will allow you to put ubuntu onto a flash drive and then boot off them.

You can download the LiveCD (which doubles as the install CD) from here: http://releases.ubuntu.com/karmic/
