I’m planning to install a Linux OS alongside my Windows 7 OS and have difficulty deciding what’s the best/efficient method of installing Ubuntu.

I know there are several methods: Live CD, Wubi, HD Install…etc. What I’m trying to ask is:

What’s the pros and cons of each installation methods. For example, Live CD uses RAM to boot the system and is slow. But it allows the user to modify their hard drive without being mounted.

On a side note, is there a Ubuntu iso available for DVDs? I’ve heard that DVD have much more content and is recommended for computer with no internet access.
