New to linux, already confused about installing in VM. It was saying it was going to wipeout the drive... is that just the VM drive it is talking about or my whole computer? This is my first time trying out Linux..

Thanks for the info and thank you for the warm welcome. Sorry about originally posting this in the wrong area at first and thank you WIZARDFROMOZ for correcting me and moving this thread. I will pay more attention next time and hope I dont do it again.

If you're running the Linux distro in a VM and installing it then it's talking about your virtual drive and not your physical drive.
