    Re: Reading the contents of a DVD -R etc.

    On another point, I have considerable space left on the DVD -R that I used to make the live DVD using k3b. I don't think that k3b finalised the disk, at least, I didn't notice this action. Is it possible for me to utilise this remaining space. If so, how would I do this?

    if the disk is not finalised, you can use the rest of the disk for data storage.

    Re: Reading the contents of a DVD -R etc.

    I have created a live DVD using k3b and would like to use the remaining space.

    I would like to create a folder and store files. How would I do this?

    I am assuming that k3b did not finalise the disk. It could have finalised the disk automatically!

    Regards.

    The lm flag is of importance.

    Are there other flags present that I should understand?

    Is there an index of the flags that give their meaning and significance?

    No. Ubuntu is Linux for human beings and one should be able to just install and run the system without detailed hardware knowledge.

    Most likely but I haven't looked for it.


    Anyway, the difference between 32 and 64 bit is minimal. If speed is the problem then better to try a lighter distro like Lubuntu.
