    Hi,I just bought a new PC .My hard drive failed and instead of buying a new drive I bought a new PC for the new year, lol.It is UBUNTU 12.04 LTS certified DELL Optiplex 390 MT.This computer does not have any operating systems on it,only free DOS.I had installed Ubuntu near an existing Windows but have never installed it as the only system.Should I manually make partitions or if I choose to install it ,is it going to make its own partition table and swap area?

    The RAM is 8 GB so I am going to install the 64 bit version.Thanks in advance.

    You can do it either way, whichever you prefer. If you don't manually do it, Ubuntu will do it for you automatically....

    Yup, agree with Kerodo. And if you decide you want to change the partition table later, it's extremely easy with an Ubuntu live cd using gparted.

    I installed Ubuntu as the only operating system and chose to erase and install as 1 partition and it is working like a charm :) During installlation I deleted 2 partitions FAT16 and Fat 32.
