Alright guys, I want to install Ubuntu onto an HP Mini (210, I think) netbook that I bought off a guy on craigslist for 50 bucks.

But there is one problem... The screen doesn't work. Right now I have an external monitor hooked up, but that doesn't show any of the startup stuff / BIOS info.

I have managed to install it through Windows and get it to boot and life is peachy, but if I restart for any reason it reboots to windows without even skipping a beat.

I know there is a way to make this happen, it's Linux. And where there is Linux, there is a way... But right now, I'm stumped.

I'm a relative Linux noob... But I love it and I love learning about it. So if there is anyone out there that thinks they can help.. Please help!

Thanks in advance!
