hello all

as i said, this weekend i was going to make the full transformation in my
laptop from windows to ubuntu.
only had time to tackle this yesterday night.

already have ubuntu 8.10 up and running, and now im just in the process of
installing the apps, at start im using the add/remove function from the

but, i dont know why, tonight im having some pretty slow speeds at
downloading, sometimes it even idles for some minutes.

im wondering if there is a way i can change the default download location
for the packages, instead of downloading from a mz archive, maybe
downloading from a .sa or some other international location.

many thanks..

still have to see if i can get the thunderbird mails running from the
windows thunderbird, to the ubuntu thunder. will reply after all process
is finished

many thanks for the help im getting :)
