    ^Downloaded from firefox's website? Then you just need to uncompress the file and run the firefox script.

    Use Ubuntu 9.04.

    And download it in .deb format. Its easier.

    t'll take time for you to get used to ubuntu but u'll like it later on. And search the web on how to install, u'll get proper steps.

    So you will be installing under WUBI?
    I recommend you learn a bit about partitioning & install it in a seperate partition soon.
