I've had it with you. If I had an image of a laser gun I would absolutely position it right here in my hand...
Ha! I have a real laser absolutely positioned in my hand!

Ok well looking through everything, I think its best for me to keep a small windows partition for premiere and save all the files on to an external harddrive.
I'm going to format my XP first then load up premiere and any other programmes i really really need then load up Ubuntu and set up the partition during the install (it looks like it lets you do that, from the info on Ubuntu website). I would rather do this than risk not being able to use my essential windows programs by loading up just Ubuntu and wiping Windows. From the looks of it Wine is not doing well with Premier at all so...maybe in the future I can be completely Windows free, and hopefully Adobe will wake up to Linux but until then I can't be.
I will load up Cinerella onto Ubuntu and learn it and hopefully it will blow Premier out of the water! fingers crossed?
Before i do all this I need to replace the battery on the internal clock...its slooooooowing down.

I really am looking forward to changing to primarily using Ubuntu though, it looks amazing and the amount of free software out their is amazing and it all looks fantastic.

Is there anything I should be looking out for when installing Ubuntu or anything i should be aware of in general with it?...especially as I've spent all my life playing with Windows.

Thanks for all your help so far guys.

Sounds like you're doing the right thing. Ubuntu will detect your Windows installation and offer to resize it for you and install Windows alongside. Just make sure you choose the 'Resize partition whatever and used freed space' option instead of the 'use entire hard drive' option. It is very easy though, you'll be fine.

One thing to remember is that Windows can't install itself alongside Ubuntu the way Ubuntu can install itself alongside Windows, i.e. you have to install Windows first. This means that if you ever need to reinstall Windows, you will have to reinstall Windows then install Ubuntu again. You can reinstall Ubuntu without needing to reinstall Windows.

I did the dual-boot for a while when I switched, just kept the minimum programs I needed on Windows, and never connected to the Internet with Windows, this works well and does seem to protect Windows enough to keep it going.

It's good that you have an external hard drive. Ubuntu will be able to browse your Windows partition anyway though.

Thanks for looking Martin...i knew it couldn't be simple :roll:
Is there any cheap wireless cards the ubuntu will recognise i can get over the counter. really need to do some work tonight on my website so desperate to get online. only shops i know have a few cards is Maplin but it doesn't say whether they are Linux compatible or not. which is a pain.
if I get one, then the Forest can have my Sweex card as I'll have no use for it....and you guys can hack it or whatever you do to make stuff work, if you want it that is.

The Linux Emporium sells linux compatible wireless cards in the UK, either buy one from them or find the same model somewhere else:
