    [ubuntu] Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers!?!?

    I'm not very knowledgeable in this field.

    I'm currently running Mint 10 (based on Ubuntu 10.10) on this Esprimo v5535). The drivers I'm using for it wouldn't work with Mint 12 (based on Ubuntu...

    [SOLVED] Windows stole my MBR!

    This must be pretty simple for people who know what they are doing. Although I'm running 9.10 (actually Mint 8, but it's based on Ubuntu 9.10 ), I am using the legacy Grub 0.97.
