Many thanks for fixing up the Canal Road site - seems excellent
venue until HTC comes back on stream.
Thanks also to Tim for the Ubuntu release. Consequently I am fired
up again and would like to install it on my dreaded laptop which is
partitioned for Windows and Linux (Mandrake) but the recent Windows
re-install (many thanks to Julian) naturally overwrote the mbr so no
optional boot available at this stage. Machine reads, loads and displays
Ubuntu from CD fine and I get the option to install but without any
request for partitioning or re-sizing of existing partitions etc.
My question is: Can I be absolutely sure that if I instruct Ubuntu
to install at this stage it won't simply try to reformat and load itself
on the Windows partition without giving any options to decline - I can't
afford to have the machine down for a second just at present.
Thanks for any re-assurance and see you all soon
