Unable to install UBUNTU in a different partition

I am working on windows 7 (64 bit ) . Can i have Ubuntu installed in another partition ? I tried to install ubuntu but unable to complete the process. Is it because Ubuntu works only on 32 bit ? or the installation CD corrupted ?

Hi Muralikrishna
Depending on the Ubuntu version it should work in 64 bits. But that woudl only make a difference if you are invoking the installation from your 64bits Windows 7, and I don't think that is the way you can install Ubuntu, you should boot from the install DVD
The DVD might be bad, burn it at slow speed and check that the iso file was not corrupt (check the MD5 checksum)

Walter is correct. You should boot from the DVD and not start the installation from within Windows (which you can do with Wubi (highly recommended!))

What is the exact error that is shown when you attempt to install Ubuntu (which distro is it?)
