I would also suggest this option, as it will be the easiest (seeing as
you new to linux and ubuntu)

Your best bet is to follow Avi's Suggestion. Install from within
Windows by running wubi.exe from the CD. You will not need to
repartition or anything. You only need to make sure you have enough
free space. Since you already indicated you will want to uninstall at
some point, Wubi is the obvious choice. You can uninstall it from
within Windows.

Alternatively, there is no reason you can't just boot from the live CD
if you just want the experience as a test. It is fully functional.

Regards,

John

but before you can boot from the cd, you will have to download a
non-alternate iso and burn that to a cd

The best advice that I could give you is to install VirtualBox and
install Ubuntu.
This will allow you to get to know Linux before you do an actual installation.
Think of it as going to a training camp before going to war.

I think you can make a live-usb to have a try.
if you want to use the ubuntu,just instert the USB key on your notebook ,boot from the usb key.

I recommend you spend some time here first:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wubi
https://help.ubuntu.com/9.10/index.html
https://help.ubuntu.com/9.10/installation-guide/index.html
Have a look through those to get an idea of Ubuntu & installation
requirements.
Once you'd done that, post back with further questions.

Note: I am not merely sending you off to "Read The Manual" to not answer
your question directly, but instead recommend that you review the
documentation & instructions _before_ attempting to install. That will
give you a good overview + detailed instructions. Pay particular
attention to:
https://help.ubuntu.com/9.10/switching/index.html
Hint; to move to the next page, just click the 'Next' link near the
bottom right of the page.

So it seems you dont know what to do with an iso file...

Step 1: (RECOMMENDED) burn it to disc. find a blank cd or dvd and use free software like deep burner to burn the iso file onto a blank disc.
OR:
Alternate Step 1: Use at least a 4 GB or larger USB Flash Drive and use Unetbootin to load the contents of the iso onto the flash drive and make it a fully bootable equivalent.


Step 2: reboot your pc and make it boot off the cd/dvd/flash drive. you may have to press F12 or something on startup to set which boot device you wanna use, or change settings in your BIOS/Boot Setup

Step 3: you have now booted into a Live Ubuntu session. you can either use it like a full operating system, without installing it at all, or you can perform an install. BE CAREFUL: at some point in the install the setup may perform some automatic partitioning. this can cause loss of data. To avoid experimenting with this use the ALTERNATE Step 2 and 3.


OR:
Alternate Step 2 and 3: (RECOMMENDED)
once you have burnt a dvd/cd of ubuntu using the iso and some cd burning software, run the disc within windows. itll give you a couple options. Select Wubi. It allows you to install ubuntu within the free space on your windows drive. Whenever you like your ubuntu install can easily and completely be removed from your system, leaving it in its original state just by going to Add/Remove programs in your windows and removing Ubuntu from there. its cool, its safe, its painless. no having to deal with partitioning as such unless your really short on space.


make sure you have at least 10 GB free on the drive you select. normally an Ubuntu install with a LOT of programs will only take 5GB or so, but still

good luck!

regards,
fez

Given that you replied to my message:
References: <BLU124-DS18F69E576F836E3BDEFC7BAB60@phx.gbl>
rather than the OP's, I'll reply.

Yes _I_ do indeed know what to do with an iso. Perhaps you should have
read the OP's original post more closely:

Ir you new to Linux and Ubuntu you should download the desktop edition
of ubuntu.

http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-releases/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso

the alternate edition is for older pcs and for more advanced
installation configurations.

do what Norman says download the desktop edition. this will allow you
to try it out first once you burn the iso image to a cd and also you
can use wubi to install ubuntu from within windows if you so choose.
