hey, i tried to install ubuntu 8.04 because i had trouble with drivers on 8.10 and i installed it without wubi is what i usually use. Anyway, when i tried to install i chose to install on my WD My Book 500GB external hardrive. The thing is, it installed wrong and won't work and it also deleted all the items off my external hardrive! i went back into windows xp and couldn't even access my external hardrive. i don't know if this topic belongs in this place but please help me because i spent a lot of my money for this hardrive and would hate to not be able to use it.
Thanks :/

i prefer linux most definitely even though i still have some problems with it and am getting used to it.
it is faster, free...er..i don't think that is a word but still, safer, quicker, etc. etc. and also better looking.
so yeah, i prefer linux but...still getting used to it.
