I have tried many times to install Ubuntu, each time that I do I get an error stating that,
Cannot install into C:\Ubuntu.
There is another file or directory with this name.
Please remove it before continuing.
I am running Win XP
Should I be in this discussion with this question or should I be in the Win XP group?
Thanks

You need to have a separate partition. Here's a rather long explanation. But it should work OK.

That looks way to involved for my skill level.
I am now pasting a rather long log of some correspondence that I had last night with a couple of forum members of Wubi, if you don't already know, Wubi is an officially supported installer for Windows users that allows Ubuntu to be installed and uninstalled in a safe, easy way as with any other Windows application, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide. As you can see they were not able to help me.
Bleeping Computer members have come through many times for me and so once again I am back.
I hope that someone gives a good look at these files and comes up with something.
I think it is a matter Of locating those files and getting rid of them , but just pushing delete isn't enough.

I have tried many times to install Ubuntu, each time that I do I get an error stating that,
Cannot install into C:\Ubuntu.
There is another file or directory with this name.
Please remove it before continuing.
For more information, please see the log file: c:\docume~1\john\locals~1\temp\wubi-11.10-rev245.log


I went to the above log file tonight and have copied what is on my notepad;

Did you uninstall the old Wubi install first?

I did, however I believe there was some problem / interruption during that uninstall / I don't recall the details

How to manually uninstall Wubi?

Remove C:\ubuntu and C:\wubildr*

In Windows XP you need to edit C:\boot.ini and delete the Ubuntu/Wubi line. Alternatively you can modify the boot menu via Control Panel > System > Advanced > Startup and Recovery and pressing "Edit". For Windows 98 you have to edit C:\config.sys and remove the Wubi block. For Windows Vista/7, you can use the built-in bcdedit command or install EasyBCD to edit the boot menu. To use bcdedit, run cmd.exe as an administrator, then enter bcdedit to show all boot entries, note the {GUID} specified for the Ubuntu entry, and then remove it: bcdedit /delete {GUID}

To remove Wubi from the add/remove list, delete the registry key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Wubi

An easy method of removing this registry key is to paste the following text into a plain editor such as Notepad, close and save the file as something like removeWubiKey.reg (you may wish to go to Folder Options > View and disable the "Hide file extensions for known file types" option to check that the .reg extension has been applied correctly). Then you can perform the rest automatically by opening the file in the normal Windows manner, or choosing the "Merge" option from the right click context menu. Note: The formatting is rather strict, so copy the text exactly for best results. You may need to be logged in as the administrator to delete the key, depending on the version of Windows you are using. User Account Control in Vista may also ask for permission, in the typical fashion.

REGEDIT4

[-HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Wubi]
After deleting the registry key, Ubuntu may still appear in the program list. If this is the case, you may be asked if you would like to remove the item from the list.

This is what I observed when I did that, there was no reference to Wubi.
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]

After performing the above I tried to “Merge” and open it normally.
I received the following REGISTRY ERROR message
Cannot import C:\Documents and Settings\John\Desktop\remove WubiKey.reg: The specified file is not a registry script. You can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor.
