Need help with OS install
Hello, I'm a long-time Slacker and I thought I'd give Ubuntu a try...
I'm trying to install from an Ubuntu 6.06.1 LiveCD, but I'm having trouble. I'm running four 80gig HDs on a RAID0 configuration through the bios. XP pro came pre-installed on the machine, and I don't want to wipe that partition. Here's what I've done so far:
I haven't started the install yet, but everything seemed to work fine so far, as I can mount the new drive with no problem from a LiveCD (after installing dmraid every time I boot with the CD, obviously), and it still boot into Windows. I want to make sure I have a few kinks worked out before going ahead, since I don't want to make my system unbootable. I prefer Grub, since it's what I'm familiar with, but any bootloader will work, I just would like to know how to make sure the RAID drivers are loaded after the install. In summation (since I'm somewhat long-winded at times):
Try the "Alternative" install CD - this gives you a fully functional installer with partitioner etc., rather than the stripped down version that the LiveCD uses.
