My laptop just died and ive lost some of my code that i was working on (had some backed up the dropbox)

Ive got a netbook (As my backup) not great for developing on but will do ok. Ive also lost my memory stick so i need some way of installing ubuntu onto this thing.

So what is the best way?

Download this

http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/windows-installer

 

This is the Wubi installer, all you do is run it in Windows and let it install and it uses about 20gb of space from your hard drive. Than when it has installed reboot and you will have the option to boot into Ubuntu or Windows.

 

That is what I have on Laptop, Ubuntu and Windows duel boot Smile

Hmm wubi works now?

I tried it during 11.04 and it messed everything up. And wouldnt it be slower than using a partition?
