    [ubuntu] Re: GRUB menu question

    Thanks we set it up with the option to display the menu on start up (for now) and to give it a bit more time. We'll see if that works when we need it again.

    [ubuntu] GRUB menu question

    When I boot Ubuntu 9.04 and the GRUB menu comes up, I press "ESC" and get no response at all. Can that be fixed? I can use "del" to get into the BIOS, but "ESC" doesn't get into that menu. Thanks for...

    [ubuntu] Re: Problem installing graphics drivers

    I have a question - is there some way to access your settings and install or uninstall the drivers when you boot to a black screen with a mouse cursor without having to reinstall Ubuntu? Can I boot...

    Thanks! Now what do I do to properly install drivers? I'm afraid I'm pretty ignorant, but don't intend to stay that way!

    [ubuntu] Re: Problem installing graphics drivers

    Is there some way to tell without opening the computer? I think its some sort of ATI card though, Ubuntu calls for ATI drivers.

    I am installing Ubuntu 9.04 and installed the recommended graphics drivers for my installation. When it rebooted I got a black screen, then later some blocks of color, but no functional desktop. I...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Wine to read more than one CD when installing a game

    So the ISO's can be used by Windows too? Do they need to be in a separate partition to do that? I'm using 30 gigs of a 80 gig drive for unbuntu, the rest is empty. How do you set up that partition?...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Wine to read more than one CD when installing a game

    Ok, read through it and am working on it now. Of course first I'll need the ISO to mount, which I am also working on atm. You just put all the ISO's in the same folder and mount/unmount as you need...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Wine to read more than one CD when installing a game

  12. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Wine to read more than one CD when installing a game

    Also, should I try to make iso's from my CD's from within ubuntu? If so, how do I do that?

    I do have dinner hours... :)
  13. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Wine to read more than one CD when installing a game

    Well, as I asked Nythain, I'm glad for any help but new as new can be. I'm still picking up the vocabulary even. Any help with mounting and unmounting the CD's (or iso's) would be greatly appreciated...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Wine to read more than one CD when installing a game

    You play Civ IV in unbuntu? I'm afraid I am a total noob and that is the one thing I really need to be able to do before I can just change OS. I play all the time with my friends online and am not...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: How to get Wine to read more than one CD when installing a game

    Isn't it easier to just use the CD's? I'm afraid that might be an old Windows preconception that tossing a CD in the drive and just using it is the easiest and fastest thing. I'd rather not try to...

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Does Ubuntu have problems verifying installation on a SATA drive?

    Ok, thanks! I managed to figure out the combination of username/password and case that worked, so all is well until the next thing I want to try.

    THANKS! :)
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Does Ubuntu have problems verifying installation on a SATA drive?

    I tried the various combinations - I can't imagine I'd type my username any other way than I normally do, but I also didn't realize I needed my password to just boot the OS. I'm not concerned about...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Does Ubuntu have problems verifying installation on a SATA drive?

    Ok, I tried something - since there was a couple of Windows files on that drive that I didn't need, I reformatted the SATA drive and reinstalled. No error message! Yay!

    Then it booted into the...
  20. [ubuntu] Does Ubuntu have problems verifying installation on a SATA drive?

    Some of you may remember that I installed a dual boot system by opening the installation CD in Windows and used Wubi to set it up. I did this with 8.10 and it seemed to work (though there was an...

    Thanks for the encouragement. I'm sure that when I get the hang of the jargon it'll all start to make sense. I'm not afraid of the "non Windows" aspect or learning a different OS - I came up through...
