Ubuntu on You

Argh. I have spent way too much time and effort this week trying to get Ubuntu Linux installed on M’s old laptop.

M bought a new computer last fall, and since then her old Fujitsu Lifebook has been sitting in the closet, unused. It is a nice computer, even if not the most recent. The hardware is all in good condition, but the software, Windows ME, is a mess. The thought was, installing a smaller linux desktop might make the machine a bit more usable for basic home use – e-mail, word processing, etc.

Unfortunately, the Ubuntu Live CD and the Xubuntu Live CD have been unable to boot on the machine. I am not ready to give up just yet, but I am putting a lot more time and effort into this particular project than I should be.

Oh well. I’ll keep you posted.
