Installing Hardy Heron by Way of Wubi

I’m installing the latest version of Ubuntu — version 8.04, a.k.a. “Hardy Heron” — using Wubi, the installer that lets you install Ubuntu directly from Windows. It’s a Windows app that retrieves and installs Ubuntu files and sets up a separate partition. As ITWire puts it, “No more burning a downloaded ISO image to CD. No more booting from the CD to install Ubuntu. No more disk partitioning decisions. No more Grub boot manager.” I’ll let you know how it goes.
