    I have a system with a 30 gig hard drive that is set as primary with windows ME on it. I want to add a 4 gig hard drive to the system and put ubuntu linux on it. How do I do it and how do I set the computer to let me pick which I want to use, I have never tried to use linux and this is a attempt to learn both the hardware side and the soft ware side at the same time. Please help

    It is the easy way as you have access to both Windows and Linux boot loaders all the time and should not be stranded with an unbootable computer.
