i've got a b&w g3 that i am attempting to put ubuntu onto. i have replaced the original hard drive with an 80 gb wd caviar se. i have put the wd caviar se through the wd diagnostic tools, and it checks out. i have tried ubuntu 8.04 alternate cd and the xubuntu 7.10 alternate cd. currently i am having issues in two areas:
1 - i am running into the 8 gb partition limit. i would love to know whether or not i will be able to make one large contiguous partition out of the additional free space after i have successfully installed ubuntu.
2 - i cannot make it through the base system installation of the alternate cd install. i keep receiving an error during this portion of the install which says:
'The debootstrap program exited with an error (return value 1).'
my installation fails with this message. if anyone can help, i would greatly appreciate it. if you need more info before you can help me, just ask.
