It is downloading to my downloaded files. I wanted to download it to a thumbdrive but it did not give me an option. Is this bad? I don't want to over write my current OS.

Try using the firefox add-on called downthemall, as a suggestion.

All you are doing is downloading an ISO. No problem it wont .

 

 

In Windows7 if you want to make a live dvd, Insert a blank dvd into your drive and double click the ISO windows will burn it as a bootable iso that you can boot a pc from or use to install the os.

 

Have you got the correct version for you PC?

Have you done this before?

What are your intentions?

Do you need any help?

 

Feel free to ask if you need help or do not understand something,  and we can guide you thru it.

I can dual boot now. I burned the Ubuntu Distro onto a DVD Disc and that works fine. I tried installing it side by side windows but could not get it to work. If Ubuntu could handle ADOBE I would overwrite Windows right now. I really like the elegance. I will probably buy a cheap used laptop to use as a dedicated Linux platform.

I know nothing about Linux but so far so good.

I also have Ubuntu dual-booting with XP. I really like it. In fact, I prefer it to Windows 8 but then again I would prefer anything to Windows 8. What is neat about Ubuntu is the ability to have multiple desktops and switching between those desktops at a click of the mouse. I am looking forward to the linux class starting Aug 1.
