So, for now I decided that I'd take the step to dual boot Ubuntu with my windows 7. I might make the switch overall, but for now it's more convenient just to try and get used to this and if anything goes wrong with trying to use WINE I can always goto 7 to play games.

Anyhow, this isn't my question. (And I have a few.)

A) It says in computer that filesystem is only 12.4gb.. which is how much I allocated from my D drive to run this. Does this mean that I'll only be able to use that much space? Or can I save to my other drives? (For example, will programs have to boot from this?) It says when I go on documents.. pictures etc that I only have 12.4gb of space. Will I have to put everything under this? How can I make this larger? And how would that change if I was to wipe windows 7?

B) When I look in computer again at what I have, I get:
1000gb hard disk: 262gb filesystem
system reserved
and the filesystem I just spoke of.

So, I suppose my question is.. where is my other drive (D) with the 650gb or so of space? I'd like to be able to save things there and get some of my current files from there, too.

Besides this, I also am considering booting windows xp instead of 7 in the other boot.. will it be possible to put in the disk and just wipe that side of things? Is that safe?

I'm pretty sure this makes no sense so pm me if you need to.. All help is appreciated and the faster any response to any question comes in.. the better :P



Additionally, (I know this should have been an edit.. but it's important and I hope people will take notice) is there a way that once I've set everything up I could change everything so that I'm only booting this? I suppose that what I'm asking is.. would it be better to try and get rid of the 7 partition or to make a ubuntu disk now that I know what I'm doing.. and start over?
