For the record disk used is 10GB (not the partition) 256MB memory, Intel P4 2.4GHz processor and the installation using VMware Workstation.
Before you install Ubuntu, the BIOS must set the Boot Device Priority first, installing Ubuntu in Boot Device Priority should be directed to the CDROM. To enter the BIOS of each motherboard has their own standards. But most stayed pressing delete or F2 key. When first booting press F2 or Del to enter BIOS, you need to press quickly, otherwise the computer will go into the OS on your hard drive. Then save the configuration and then reboot again.
Start installing Select Start or Install, we can run through the Ubuntu Live-CD. In the Live CD we can try Ubuntu without having the ability to install to hard disk, at this moment you can write documents, the internet, like you’ve installed the hard drive. And keep in mind that this is only read only which means that all documents that are stored in the / home is temporary and will disappear if the reboot. We assume you have a new 10 GB hard drive in the partition and not be in install Ubuntu.
The next step we need to partition the hard disk first, click System> Administration> Gnome. Because we will create a new partition then right click on the black area and then click create, then wait if it is right click on the black area again. And do not forget we have to determine how large a partition that is used. Here I have a 10 GB hard drive with the partition that is 2 to 8.7 GB ext3 and the rest for swap. Click Add when you have to configure it. After you click add it will appear in blue on the black area, if there is space remaining then right click again, select new. Then click add, (requires a minimum linux swap and root partition) after that if we want to do the disk partition that has been done earlier then click Apply, and then wait loading process.
