Converting to grub2

Posted 09-25-2010 at 01:11 PM by Larry Webb

This morning I converted booting 7 distros to grub2 after updating ubuntu to 10.4.1 ext 4 file system. I still have some fine tuning to do but was surprised at the ease and simplicity. You have to abandon most of the old grub legacy way of thinking. I have a large data partition to convert from ntfs to ext4. I will then be totally linux flavored.

Decided to use my portable drill for other things. Pulled the motor and set it aside.

My Wife Has Been Converted

Posted 09-23-2010 at 07:28 PM by Larry Webb

My wife was a die hard M$ user. She likes her games but somewhere along the way she got a nasty mal-ware. I refused to clean it up this time. I did not have a recovery partition or cd so I told her if she wanted to continue to use M$ she would have to figure out how to clean it herself or start using linux. I showed her several options and she chose knoppix. I think in a couple of more weeks when she gets more comfortable she will be hooked permanent.
