Hello,
I'm new to Linux/ubuntu all together. I wanted to try it out, so i downloaded Ubuntu 10 and duel booted it on my laptop. After a few hours figuring stuff out. I wan to get Eve online to run on it. I know the steps but im running in to a "space" problem. When i go to run the install program, its not letting me go to the next step because its saying i do not have enough room. Now when I installed Ubuntu i only gave my self 18GB of space. I think that im out of space and need more. Is there a way to partition my HD now to allow more space?

Im a newb when it comes to Linux/Ubuntu, but i want to learn it. It seems like i can have more control over my comp then letting windows do everything =/ugh

gparted is your friend.
Graphical, flexible, NTFS support, grow partitions, shrink partitions, slice, dice, julienne, it does everything.

Yes, this is true.

However, I would make sure to back up anything important before messing with paritions.

To get Gparted, you need to boot up into a Live CD and access it from there.

you can use your windows hard drive when you install eve, you dont have to partition anything.

Think he means the issue with the installer auto extracting itself to the c:\temp directory that happen to be on his small partition, i have the same problem.
