Hi, all!

I had a question. I installed Ubuntu on my PC using the Windows Installer found on the Ubuntu website. As far as I know, Ubuntu exists in the Windows file systems and it's on dual boot-- the computer has me choose between operating systems when I start up the computer.

Also as far as I know, the standard way to install Ubuntu is by repartitioning my hard disk and having Ubuntu live on the hard disk alongside Windows.

How can I install Ubuntu in this way, having already installed it using Windows Installer? That is, is it possible to move my Ubuntu from the Windows file systems into it's very own partition on my hard drive?

Thanks for the help!
