I have successfully installed UBUNTU. Its too easy man, just like Windows installation, rather better because You just have only One click installation.Thats it.One click. Ofcourse if you want to customise then it takes more clicks.But Too easy for a novice too. It even detects your hardwares. If you do not know whats your keyboard type, it asks you to type out certain keys and depending upon that It decides what is your keyboard type.
Well, since I have tried a lot of Linux live cds on KDE environment, it took me sometime to get aquinted with the GNOME of UBUNTU but not much hassel. It rocks.
