Success x2
« on: April 09, 2008, 07:38:13 AM »

New laptop running dual boot with Ubuntu. Took a couple days and a couple failed attempts to get the wireless network connected but it's running now.

sudo is your friend.

ubuntuforums is a lifesaver.

Do I qualify as a sudo geek yet?

Russia has invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatens a democratic government elected by its people. Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century.

You were working on the password problem with your new laptop so probably yes.

 Grin  Oh.  I was waiting on it.  Esp. after AP posted on it.

Question:  Does it have to run on the disk, or can it be "installed"?

It can be ran from the disk or installed. I have to go to the post office today so I'll get it out.

try it from the disc, and as long as you like it, install it to run dualboot.

there are tons of helpful instructions online.  (and it's easy enough you might not even need them!.    note, if it does go wrong though, you could lose your windows install)
