Installation help

I was trying to install UBUNTU 10.10 from a DVD from Linux Identity Office Volume Four Number Four edition.


Allocate drive space,

There were only 2 options and not 3.

Erase and use the entire disk

Specify partition manually

The option which I want is Install alongside other operating systems

which does not show up during installation.

Is it missing on the disc and do I have to download from somewhere?

Thanks and hope to get a solution to this problem.

    It's probably not missing, it probably needs a proper partition. Go into Windows and shrink the windows partition using windows own utility, then try the Ubuntu disk again. To be safe, make sure you have at least 20 Gb free in the new partition.
