Dont know why i have linux & linux swap 2 times i installed ubuntu from live iso.
Simple. You installed linux twice. Yes, you did.
I am trying to put Backtrack on sda2 witch is 9gb & have Ubuntu on sda1. Wipe out vista they are on dual-boot. & then to have them both on one bootloader.
a) Use GParted Live to free the space in sda1 and sda2
b) Use GParted Live and wipe the entire drive (after backing up files)
c) Buy another drive and start clean (hard drives are so cheap now)
