Yes, I have the guide.
Although I'm considered a power user of Windows by my friends, little do they know that much of the HighPoint 2340 Linux Guide is too cryptic for me.
I've successfully installed dual-boot WinXP and Ubuntu 10.04 on two other machines, but these did not require an external driver for the disk controller.
I don't know how to tell if the installer even reads the drover, much less if it is the right one or, for that matter, if it is in the correct format.
Like I said, I need lots of handholding, probably more than is reasonable to ask.
