Once you've installed Ubuntu, you can ask its own package manager to install 
texlive for you. You might also want to ask it to install texlive-latex-extra 
(which I needed for comment.sty, for example).

In general, if you want to install something on Ubuntu, the package manager is 
a good place to look, because you can be reasonably sure that the version it 
provides has been tested with the rest of Ubuntu. I think Synaptic is still 
the default graphical user interface for Ubuntu's package manager.
