    Re: What is this partition listed by fdisk?

    Is this normal? The standard way? How is it that the end of /dev/sda1 (221863935) is different from the start of /dev/sdb1 (221865982)?

    Re: Ubuntu not seeing all memory installed

    Yes I have a graphics card. The motherboard does not have on board video card. Wouldn't that mean that Video Card would use the memory on the video card itself?

    Re: Ubuntu not seeing all memory installed

    That article seems to speak about free memory. My problem is with total memory. When I had 2GB MemTotal reported I had 2GB. Now that I have 4GB, MemTotal reports I have 3.3GB.
