    :D

    Now this is something I can help you out with. Take your Windows installation CD (it's probably the best if you have a full version), and stick it in your computer. Go through the setup process to the point where it talks about installing different partitions. Now here's where you have to be careful. It'll ask you which one you want to install, it also gives you the option of deleting other partitions. Simply reformat the 10 Gig Ubuntu one and you're done. :)
