I am new to Ubuntu.
After watching this thread, it looks as if I managed to do something
I have Ubuntu running on two machines ... Both are running Windows XP
Pro and Ubuntu 8.04.
#1 machine is a Compaq Presario.
1.5 GiB ram
2.7 GhZ Intell Celeron CPU
Drive 0 is (200 GiB) partitioned as:
C: 50 GiB (approx)
E: 50 GiB (approx)
F: 100 GiB (approx)
Drive 1 is one big partition which is:
D: 200 GiB
Here is what I did:
New folder in > My Documents > Ubuntu. In the Ubuntu folder, I
down loaded > ubuntu-8.04-desktop-i386.iso AND Wubi-8.04.exe. From
that folder, I ran the program
Wubi-8.04.exe. Ubuntu has been installed on logical drive F.
#2 machine is home rolled.
Mother board: PC Chips A13G V 3.0
2 GiB Ram dual ddr 2
2.2 GhZ Athelon CPU
Drive 0 is (320 GiB) partitioned as:
C: ; D: and E: at approx 100 GiB respectively.
Again, as above with folders, this time Ubuntu is installed on logical
drive E. I also burned
the ISO image to a CD.
With that CD, I ran Ubuntu on 2 older machines that are way slow. 350
MhZ CPU. The drive was
only 3 GiB. It ran flawlessly, even off the CD. I did have to down
load the "proprietary" drivers
for the displays, which was no problem.
I notice that while looking through the files on the drives that
Ubuntu is installed on, there is a
program to un-install Ubuntu.
My next step is to see if I can revive my old Toshiba lap top which
keeps giving me the error of:
"This is the wrong CD for this machine.". It just will not accept the
CD that came with the lap top.
I am/will be looking at "Wine" as I have some programs that are built
Hope this helps someone and I have this in the right place. Or if
someone has any suggestions, I
am more than willing to listen & learn.
Thank you Team Ubuntu
