Default Dell Inspiron 6000

Hey guys, one last question before I purchase a new hard drive for this laptop (Dell Inspiron 6000).

Ok, I've picked out a compatible (I hope) IDE drive. The drive that's getting replaced is toast, so I can't even load up an operating system. I can get into BIOS. My goal is to put Ubuntu on the new drive.

My question is, when I screw in the new drive and push the power button, what steps do I need to follow to load my Operating system?? Is it as simple as putting the cd with the Ubuntu image on it in the CD tray? The drive is bare, unformatted, etc.

ANY HELP YOU CAN PROVIDE IS MUCH MUCH APPRECIATED!!

I never knew a modest mouse

Just make sure the cd/dvd drive is first in boot order. then you're fine. Just pop the disk in and enjoy the ride.
