This page is designed to provide basic information about Ubuntu, primarily aimed at new users; to document problems, and their solutions, that have been encountered in the past; and to capture new (to me) snippets of information that may be useful to others. The postings will be kept brief, with references to the source of the information as posted elsewhere on the web. Check out the following tips, tricks and traps…


First things first – Obtaining Ubuntu
Burning the .iso file to CD
Running the Live-CD
Installing Ubuntu on the hard disk
Manual partitioning
Manual partitioning revisited


Help is at hand
Pasting text into a Terminal window
When all else fails…
W-getting Ubuntu distros
