    Thanks for posting your query in this forum. You can start the installation of Ubuntu and removal of PCLinux partitions through Ubuntu Partition manager. Also create a new partition of Ubuntu. Then proceed with the installation and let it copy all the files in place. Make sure that the bootloader is installed correctly. Ubuntu should install in bootloader, giving you access to both windows and ubuntu. In case that doesn't happen, you can still use the windows or Linux installation disk to fix the bootloader. If you want to try and use ubuntu along with PCLinux OS,you can try using Wubi to install Ubuntu without having to partition the drive.
