How do I create the 2nd partition please?
Is there a simple way to copy the CentOS DVD to the HD and install off the HD rather than DVD?

Another option is to format the HDD with CentOS and select virtualization among installed file sets. Once the setup is done you can install a virtualized ubuntu client over the CentOS . This will allow you to use both distros on the same system concurrently available.
