    When I do clean installs of Ubuntu it has an option to install side by side with <whatever>. Just select that and let the installer do the work.

    Re: Which Video Card to get?

    You can also be sure if SC2 under Wine has bugs, they will be addressed. Wine keeps up with changes to WoW pretty quickly. I'd expect things to be the same with SC2.

    Yeah, I probably shouldn't have upgraded as everything was running fine, but since it worked I won't cry over it.

  22. [ubuntu] Re: nvidia driver questions (so I don't screw things up)

    That's the way I'm leaning myself. My current driver is working fine, and I'm not sure if updating will help anything (mainly World of Warcraft).

  23. [ubuntu] Re: does ext4 have any benefits over NTFS for external HDDs?

    Nope, no problems.

    If you ever plan to take your external drive to someone else's place who might run Windows, you may want to keep it as NTFS as MS doesn't "see" ext3 or ext4 drives.
