Re: Ubuntu netbook locking up during startup
My only suggestion would be, since you've only just started, reinstall the version of Ubuntu you want. I've been testing versions from Live USB drive instead of installing on hard drive for the time being, and that's an easy way to make mistakes without serious consequences. (Be sure you create 1 or 2 GB of "Persistence" during the installation, to save settings between boots.)
I personally found the 10.10 Netbook Remix very slow, much slower than the Desktop Ubuntu and double-much slower than Lubuntu, and it seems to create problems for others if you read around this forum.
As for the "Keyring" I haven't had problems - it seems to pop up during the first set up and I use the same PW I use for Windows log in. I'm sure others can advise on how to disable it, if you prefer.

New to Linux. Currently dual boot Lubuntu 10.10 with W7 on Acer One netbook. Experimenting with Mint 15 XFCE on netbook and a Dell laptop with peripherals (Persistent 8GB Live USB.)
