    Problem Solved as redundant "8.0 GB Media" entry went away on its own. Thanks everyone for the advice.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: how to delete old usb drive - media file

    Thanks for the idea myst. I think what you are suggesting is that I log-in as root > "Nautilus" from terminal but when I open up any likely (to me) folders (like dev>disk, media or mnt) I can't find...

    [ubuntu] Re: firefox disappears when I minimize page

    You all nailed it! Thanks a million!

    Looks like Intrepid does the FF windows a bit differently than Hardy and it will take me while to get used to it.

    [ubuntu] Re: boot from usb stick

    Addendum.
    The news is not as good as I had hoped. Turns out that the UNetbootin version is not "persistent", that is it doesn't retain setting after it is shut down. That, to me, is a fatal flaw and...

    [ubuntu] Re: boot from usb stick

    So you think a version I would get from pendrivelinux would be different from from the one off the 8.10 CD? The other thing is that this USB stick works fine with both computers in other respects so...
