Installing Ubuntu Alongside Windows

Some brief notes on installing what I think is a great alternative or backup to a Windows OS on a PC:
NB: If installing Windows do that first (see an earlier post):
  1. Create USB stick
  2. Follow instructions on
  3. Once installed check for updates: System/Admin/Synaptic update manager
  4. Install StartUpManager to edit the GRUB menu:
  5. Run it (System/Admin/StartupMan) and change the timeout to 3s and default OS to Windows if you wish
