I know Macs can run Windows, but I recently wondered if it could run Ubuntu as well. So, I popped the 5.10 install disc into my iMac, and rebooted, holding down OPTION. Bang, up comes a menu. Macintosh HD and a disc labelled "WINDOWS". Click it, and the Ubuntu installer for x86 begins. Now, I aborted first chance I got "safely", and I rebooted into OS X, which went without a hitch. Now, I hadn't installed Boot Camp, or partitioned my drive - so, a coupla questions.
1 - Is it possible to partition my drive without destroying all the data?
2 - Is bootcamp necessary for Ubuntu?
Thanks for the help in advance.
