Re: Need help...XP trial ran out...installing linux but don't know how to partition..
1) yes, i installed ubuntu on a new partition (i used the partition manager during the install) and i could access my xp partition perfectly fine
2)i dont know kbuntu, but ubuntu does have a graphical installer and i have no reason to believe this doesnt
3)the partition manager allows you to resize the partitions
as for installing linux its pretty much self explanatory. im pretty much a linux n00b and i did it without instructions, its quite simular to installing xp, you just get a load of screens and you choose a few options, easy enough
