thanks to both of you.
that other link to the Ubuntu thread is mine and it did not work. My computer is a dell d410 with a 2ghz processor and 1,000mb of ram. It ran Ubuntu fine when I had a dual install with Windows. However, I messed up the GRUB loader and then I had to reinstall a new operating system with a USB stick. I can download the .rpm file from Unebootin no problem, but what command do I input from there?
does anyone know?
