My first look at Ubuntu (on that debian machine)
Anyway, a while later I got the 2gb hard disk out of that busted old W95 machine (2 posts ago) and stuck it into the deb machine and tried installing ubuntu7 on it. It was a nightmare, but, unlike most things, I kept at it. After a while, I managed to get to the end of the ubuntu installation (the part where it actually dumps it on your computer) and found out that 2gb wasn't enough.
So, I got out another hard drive, a 4gb this time and put ubuntu on it. It still took loads of restarting, but I managed it and when I had it I loved it! The history of that 'piece of junk' will hopefully be blogged in the next post.
