I am thinking of installing the Ubuntu OS on a laptop of mine. I downloaded the version for desktop, but found the file is a .iso file, so it's a little over my head, knowledge-wise.

I read about "installing it from a DVD or flash drive" - tried copying the file to a flash drive and clicking on it Smile Didn't work Smile

I'll keep snooping it out, but thought someone here might be able to jump start me.

Thanks in advance!
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Are you a Windows user??

If so, what you need is CDBurnerXP ... .iso is a image file of a disk and that program will burn the image to a blank cd/dvd and you can then boot from.
