As you might guess, I'm new to Linux. I've only used it a bit as a server and have never installed it myself.
I have an old PC running windows XP which I'll to use as a Linux system now as I want to learn more about it.
My PC only has 512mb ram and is running slowly, so I wanted to install a lightweight version of Linux. I Only have 20GB HDD of which 17GB is being used by XP. Ideally I'd like to remove XP and run LXDE only. Having looked at the wiki and installation information, I'm not sure how I go about running LXDE instead of XP.
Can anyone point me in the right direction - cheers
Edit, I looked at ubuntu windows installer, but from it's graphics, it looks like it takes 17GB of space which is too much for my old PC: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/windows-installer
So I looked around and read good things about LXDE, but I'm not sure how to get it running. I don't want to run it from a CD or USB, I want it as the main OS. If someone has alternative Linux version that they think I should use, I'd be interested to hear it. Cheers again
