Answers
  • Yes!

    You can take an Ubuntu CD (burned by you, or obatined from Canonical / Ubuntu via snail mail for free) and pop it into the CDROM Drive of your computer. If it's a modern computer, you should be able to direct the BIOIS to allow you to boot from CDROM. This will give you the option of booting the "live CD" to test Ubuntu. This will also give you the option to just go for it an install Ubuntu.

    If you cannot boot from a CDROM, let me know, as this can be much more difficult.

  • Yes you can run Ubuntu on an computer without windows installed, in fact administration get simplified without having to babysit the potential issues caused by windows update.

    All you would need to do in run the installer from the disk or flash drive (whichever installer you choose) and choose to use the whole disk, which will remove your windows and other partitions and allocate all disk space to ubuntu.
