Where to go from here

First and foremost I am posting this to aid the great folks here and not because I went against advice and partitioned anyway.
First off I used the provided program within win 7 to do the partitioning. While I was at it I created an additional partition should I want to play around with another distro.
I loaded Ubuntu 10.04 because it was the live CD I had.
As an additiomal point reference after updates it immediately recognized wireless.
Again thank each of you who was part pf this process, I came away knowing more and appreciating 7 more. See attachments before and after
