    [SOLVED] Re: HFS+ read/write access

    Also, it's always good to ask, are you burning the ISO as...
  7. [other] Re: Ubuntu/Lubuntu/Windows XP grub and boot problems

    UPDATE!

    I changed the boot order so that the SATA drive (Lubuntu 10.04 install) is the second boot device after the CD device and that brought me back to the grub 2 boot menu so I am back to being...
  8. [other] Re: Ubuntu/Lubuntu/Windows XP grub and boot problems

    I installed it onto a different physical disk than the Lubuntu 10.04 or the Ubuntu 8.10 so I'm certain Windows XP didn't delete Lubuntu or Ubuntu. I am in the Ubuntu 8.10 install right now, as that...

    [ubuntu] Re: how bad are ATI cards with linux?

    Re: Problems with the infamous Broadcom wireless

    It's not so much team Ubuntu's fault as it's Broadcoms. The driver they've released for linux just plain doesn't work for many of the different 43xx models, particularly the latest and earliest...
