How do I install ubuntu 7.04 on my intel macbook pro? Preferably using a boot cd.?

Specifically, I want to try ubuntu on my macbook pro and have heard that I can use a live cd to do so. However all the tutorials I have found are very out of date. How do I do this? Or if I did want to dual boot, how would I? I mostly want to experiment with Linux and am very intrigued by ubuntu and want to give berryl a try. What can I do?

  1. You can download the live cd online here(or request some to be shipped to you absolutely FREE!)

    http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

    then burn the ISO to a blank CD with Nero or any burning software, then when its done restart the computer with the CD in and Ubuntu should load up. For help installing with dual boot and any other questions go her

    Hope that helps some.

    1.Get the Live CD first of all. I will recommend ordering one, because most of the time the download is bad. You can order free Ubuntu CDs here:
    http://shipit.ubuntu.com/

    2.Get to your BIOS and make sure that the system boots from the CD – ROM first (make changes in Boot Order) .

    3.Insert the CD and restart your system. It will run and from thereon it will be a cakewalk for you. The installation is completely GUI style and you won’t have any troubles at all. The Ubuntu installer will automatically detect other OS s (Macintosh in your case) and will create a Grub Boot Loader. With it, you can choose to start either Ubuntu or Macintosh while the system starts.

    I (Windows user) am also trying out Ubuntu, and I don’t think it’s great. It’s certainly amazing for free (with LOADS of very useful software), but you have to learn a lot of commands if you want to fully utilize it. They are very irritating. Still go for it!!
