    [kubuntu] Re: Kubuntu Kidnapped Grub!!!

    Nope, not my first encounter with Grub2, just my first encounter installing a linux distro that installed a bootloader without any prompting whatsoever.

    I don't get it... LiveCD technology has existed for years now... Much longer than the technology to boot from a USB stick.
