Several basic settings questions (keyboard, language, timezone, hostname) are asked.
I added a single user account when prompted.
I created the following partitions:
- /boot (94MB; ext3)
- /swap (2GB; linux-swap)
- / (16GB; ext3)
- /home (31GB; ext3)
Upon reboot, I selected Windows XP to ensure that it was unaffected. It ran a chkdsk and after an automatic reboot it ran as normal.
I then booted Ubuntu for the first time...
