    [ubuntu] Re: Dual boot on 128gig possible?

    [ubuntu] Re: NTFS Partition Read Only

    I don't think this is an issue of permissions - I ran into this exact issue with my backup drive.

    [ubuntu] Re: Skype won't install

    Did you purge your previous install first? If you didn't, it confuses the new installation.

    I'm pretty sure removing ubuntu-desktop doesn't actually do anything unless you're trying to upgrade between different versions.

    Yeah, you already have a fast HD, so you need the swap less, and you don't want to excessively write.
