To install Ubuntu from the disc included with this book, you must have at least a Pentium-class CPU, 3GB of hard drive space, and 256MB RAM. Most modern systems have significantly larger drives, and it is an idea to invest in more storage from your local computer store.
To begin the installation, you need to get into your computer's BIOS to set the boot sequence so that the CD/DVD drive is the first drive that is booted. Insert the DVD into the drive and let the system boot. When the menu appears, press the Enter key to boot into Ubuntu Live.
Double-click the Install icon on the desktop and follow the instructions. When the installer finishes, choose to restart the system immediately; eventually, the disc ejects, and Ubuntu starts to boot. After a few seconds, the login window appears. Enter the username and password specified during the installation. Welcome to Ubuntu!
