Ran the live edition, seemed to go OK, internet working etc, so decided to install. My partitions were as follows, to make it easier (glad I decided to do that last time!):

/sda1 12GB obsolete ubuntu version to be replaced by the new LMDE
/sda2 logical partition:
/sda5 2GB swap
/sda3 36GB DATA partition with all my files on

Linux Mint Debian Edition

I currently have two computers, both elderly: a Pentium 4 desktop and a Pentium M laptop, both with 1GB RAM. At the moment I'm using Linux Mint 10 (Gnome) on the desktop and Linux Mint LXDE 11 on the laptop.

This tutorial is done on Vectorlinux using the Quicksynergy front end, but Synergy itself will run on Mac, Windows as well as all Linux flavors. As usual, I've captured it all on video and put it up on Youtube.

Check out the Video here.
