Hello. This is my first post, so feel free to kick me if I make a mistake.
Anyway, I am trying to install Xubuntu 8.10 over my Ubuntu installation, in the hope that it will make the old dinosaur a bit more responsive.
Specs: PIII 500Mhz
20GB hdd, 3GB second hdd normally used as a net share.
At the partitioning stage, as soon as it tries to do any work on the drives, the installer crashes to the live CD desktop, and the crash reporter appears.
On the other hand, it detected my wireless card, so once I get it installed, no more messing about with ndiswrapper!
Should I try the alternate install cd, or is there a solution that will work with the Live CD?
I have only been using Linux for the past 6 months or so (thank you Asus), so there may be something obvious I have forgotten to do.
