Another Ubuntu question.

I first made this laptop dual boot to Ubuntu about a year or two ago, I forget how long ago. But the first time I did it, I didn't give it enough memory, and had to get advice on how to expand the memory Ubuntu got. Well, I'm finding the 10 gigs I gave it a little restrictive now, and I have no clue what happened to the original instructions on how to expand that. So if anyone could help me with that, I'd be very grateful.

I did this dual-booting thing automatically with the install disk, if that makes a difference. Oh, and the Windows side is Windows 7.

If was a matter of changing a number in a *file* rather than changing partition sizes, it seems you're using something called WUBI, which means the Ubuntu "partition" is not a real disk partition but a really big file inside the Windows partition.

I can't help you with that (I don't have any computers running Windows, or Ubuntu for that matter), but maybe the keyword WUBI can help you find instructions.

WUBI sounds familiar, yes. Thanks!

I found the instructions I was looking for, thanks to your help. Thank you!
