you dont need to configure anything the ubuntu installer will just create a new partition from the free space on ur computer and install itself on that

and yes u can safley remove linux without damaging windows

installation is even simpler than windows..so dont get procrastinated and give a start..:|

create a new partition? what if i dont want to create a new one? I just want it installed on D drive

What is difference between Windows and ubuntu or linux.

Windows is closed source OS (Its original code is not open to public) made by a corporate company which costs a lot, Ubuntu/Linux is open source (Anyone can see all of its coding, and edit or redistribute it) and is made by users/volunteer coders from around the world. Though most of Linux distros nowadays have some sort of corporate backing, either non-profit or otherwise. And you can customize Linux down to its kernel to suite your needs.
