I want to dual boot Ubuntu

But I don't know what software to get and how to do any of it

Any step-by-steppers around?

If you're willing to spend some money.... Buy and install VMWare Fusion (I think it's around $79). With Fusion you can run Ubuntu in a virtual session. VMWare even has a ready to go image of Ubuntu that you can download and install. Sorry, I don't have a step by step to give you but from what I have read, installing and setting up Fusion is fairly straight forward.

BTW, Fusion has its own forums where you can ask questions and pick up information on how to do's.

Regards.

Fusion also has a 30 day trial so you can check it out before deciding if you want to buy it.
