    Perhaps not - or perhaps your answer lives in another time zone. Posting guidelines/courtesy dictate bumping a post only after 24 hours.

    Re: Mission Impossible

    ok i am a total unbuntu newbie and it looks incredible buuuuuuut when i boot up i have 2 images for unbuntu, 1 osx image, 2 useless penguins, and my windows7. total of 6 bootup images on a refit bootup screen. please can someone help, i can start unbuntu but it takes a few times to start it up. i think it was super boot manager that caused problems or the grub customiser i installed. just want to get everything back to normal. i know i messed it up and it has been a hard lesson that i will not make again!
