    Dual Booting Ubuntu
    I'm currently running Ubuntu off a live CD, and have decided i want to install it, while being able to boot into OS X whenever I want to. I already have a 10 GB partition that I made a long time ago for the purpose of WIndows, however since then I have wiped it clean.

    I have no idea what to do. if someone could post a walkthrough or something, that would be great.

    Thanks in advance!

    Do you currently have the windows partition on your mac? If not then you need to make a new partition using either boot camp or disk util. Once that is done, insert ubuntu CD boot into the CD and then double click on the install icon on the desktop. It will take you though the wizard. Be careful to selec the correct partition for installation and install bootloader on the linux partition. Thats all....

    When I tried that, the partiton didn't show up. I have a 10 GB partition that was originally used for Windows, but I wiped it clean. It still exists, it's just empty.

    Then you can straight away start the installation. Boot from Ubuntu CD and when it's booted, double click installation icon to start installation.
