I've recently acquired Ubuntu 7.04v disk, but the problem is I've neither used nor worked on Linux OS before, so I really don't know how to install it. Although, I found this guide (as follows) on how to install it but I do have some questions.
Lets suppose I've a 250GB Hard drive with C: and D: partition of 25GB of space respectively (lets ignore other partitions) and I've Windows XP on C: drive, and I want to install Ubuntu on D: drive then how do I do it?

Ubuntu won't show you "C:" and "D:," as those are Windows designations for partitions. When you run the Ubuntu installer, it should just show you partitions, and you can click on whichever one you want to install on.
When you boot from a Ubuntu CD it loads to a "Live CD" OS, which is basically Ubuntu running off the CD. From there you can run the Installer and install it to the partition you need. You will actually need to set up 2 partitions for it. 25GB is plenty for this though. You could use maybe 24.4GB for the main partition and use the rest for a Linux swap partition.
I have no idea what LVM is honestly. But all I know is that everytime I have installed Ubuntu or Kubuntu from version 5.10 to 6.06 to 7.04, I have always made a normal partition and a small swap partition. Never seen an option for LVM and never heard of it. Or maybe I just missed it.
I have only one partition with Vista Business and all attempts to split the drive mt brick wall and I like to install Ubuntu 7.0. I have tried using partition magic, partition logic but no way, please any idea, anybody?
If you have only 'one' partition, then you'll need to re-partition it. I'm not sure if you can still install Linux on it. Basically, with multiple partitions you can simply sacrifice one partition and install Linux on it.
