You have a CD with 7.04 right? If you don't then follow this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto

Once you've done that (or if you already have the CD), I like to format my harddrive with a program called, Darik's Boot and Nuke, which you can find here: http://dban.sourceforge.net/
Then just install Ubuntu as usual.

So yea, it'll be quite easy.

Just pop in 7.04 into your hard drive, and follow the instructions carefully, and there's an option to erase the whole drive, and install Ubuntu on it. It's quite easy. Or you can go the Gparted Live CD to format/ partition your drive. Then, pop in 7.04 and install.

 I have Ubuntu on one hard drive-i want to install windows 2000 on that hard drive (Ubuntu on the other I can do that myself i think)-Ubuntu will not recognize the windows CD-what should I do?

Can you help with this problem?
