    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Login Help

    I'm guessing you're looking at various version of the Kernel, and possibly other OS's you may have installed. By default, when the kernel gets updated, it just tacks on a new entry on the boot menu....
  4. [ubuntu] Re: some basic questions about ubuntu (before i install it)

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't access Windows partition

    I had problems myself with 8.04, sticking with 7.10 as on my hardware it works a lot better.. waiting for 8.10 before I try again.

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't access Windows partition

    [ubuntu] Re: Does 7.10 still receive updates?

    [ubuntu] Does 7.10 still receive updates?
