    You have to burn it to a disk, as an ISO image. A good way to do that is to use nero 8. Download the 30 day trial from the site.

    after that click on data cd and then options will come up for burning an image to a disk. click choose yor file and then your done.

    He meant the software, nero, not Ubuntu.

    Uh.

    You realize Ubuntu is an operating system you don't 'run it', so you can get ubuntu on windows.

    Burn the archive to the disc, pop it in your pc, boot with the disc and let it load if you like what it looks like from the LiveCd then install it.

    you can use this Wubi - Ubuntu Installer for Windows to install Ubuntu inside windows
    and if you do not like it you can just uninstall it

    I use wubi, and its great. A lot better because it uses the windows bootloader instead of Lilo bootloader etc...

    You could also try Ubuntu in VmWare first of course...

    Well I'm pretty sure since 7.04 it came with NTFS support.

    Anyway, the wubi installer is pretty neat, but it does come pre-installed with 8.04, just don't boot from the disc, explore the cd in windows.

    Everytime i click the Wubi-8.04 installer from the disc, it starts to download the .iso file from Ubtunu. I had to download the file, and copy the Wubi-8.04 installer with my iso on my desktop to install it.

    I looked it up on google and it said it only does this if the iso and wubi file arent in the same directory, but they were, on the cd and on my desktop.

    I tried the Wubi installer and I had bad experiences with it. Maybe it's just my hardware configuration or something that it didn't like? First thing I noticed was that on install, wubi asks for a user password, but not a root password. Ubuntu only lets you log in as a basic user, and you have to switch to root via command line whenever you want to to administrative things. I tried to change the root password with the 'passwd' command, but since I didn't know the original, I couldn't change it. I ran updates via the gui, which it let me do for some reason, and then left for the afternoon. When I came back, it had frozen. So I just rebooted into Windows and uninstalled it. A shame, because I wanted to use Ubuntu with my hardware, not with emulated hardware via VMware or something. Is it easy to dual-boot, as in, without using Wubi? I've never tried it.
