Pock, you should come over and put Ubuntu on for me. last time I did, using the newest version, setting up the Swap, which has changed form the last version I installed, screwed up the drive letter for my main HDD
Ubuntu install wasn't too bad. I did have some hardware issues on an Inspiron E1505 I am using it on. It didn't have the correct firmware for the wireless card.
That is what I liked about gentoo, doing an install from source, building a kernel customized for my hardware. Although that got time consuming, it was fun and informational while I was learning linux, now that i know how to utilize the OS, I just want easy.. I went from Gentoo to CentOS to Ubuntu (Server and also running Desktop)
Last time I ran Ubuntu, install was super easy, picked the drive for the Linux OS to run on, partitioned, went with default swap and done.
This time, it was different. When it asked which drive to set the partition, the drive letters had me all screwed up and it ended up putting swap at 0 on drive 1, so there was no way to load the grub
