Hi Lorax,

Well done dude, welcome to the Wonderfull World of Linux!!!!!!!!

And to think it all came down to just keeping the iso on the C: drive. I should have thought about asking that sooner, but hey, you got it working and that's the most important thing.

BTW, nice swirl below your nick!

Kind regards,

Eric

Congratulations all around!!!! And keep the beer on ice if you will, plain tickets are a bit expensive right now

Kind regards,

Eric

Hey Eric! T H A N K Y O U !!!

I kept all the notes, from all your walk-throughs. So I felt confident in going into the console, and installing/loading, and making default, KDE!

Not only were notes used minimally, but I intuitively used apt-get, cat, touch, and nano! Hey it's no big deal to most Linux users, but to me, a REAL big deal. I'm only 3 hours old in linux world!

You're very welcome, I'm glad you got it up and running and seemingly enjoying it. You know, whatever problem, question or doubt, you can put it here on LinuxQuestions and I'm sure you'll get help at the blink of an eye.

You'll learn pretty fast what it's about and soon you'll be looking into other distros, desktops and so on. The more you experience the more you learn. The book that was posted earlier by another LQ user is a pretty complete reference, although sometimes a bit heavy if you're new at Linux. Nevertheless I advice you to read, try, experiment, ....

Make the She-Beast scream in agony......

Kind regards,

Eric

That's the spirit, keep it up. I'm always around, even connected when I'm at work. The only time when I'm not connected is when I'm sleeping, eating or on the road.

So, bring it on!!!!

Opinions are a personal issue that differ for a lot of people. I've tried a lot of distros when I started out with the Linux Desktop and right now MY personal favorite is Slackware.

Kind regards,

Eric

I will do so. I'll find you when when I have another issue/thread.
I feel one comming on as we speak: changing menu and boot.ini when winderz and a linux are already present...
Well' I'll wait till I have a problem with it, before I bug you about it.

Man thanks so much for putting up with me! As a hater/avoider of proprietary restrictions and corporate control, this starts a new era for me! LIBERATED!

I can see the Linux community as a social movement. In a way, we are activists :-D
Linux users are free-thinking individual human people.
The others, are, well, wolf-lead sheeple!

I might just kindly ask the author of the tutorial to edit step #1. Or, I just might personally go to his office, and force him to read EVERY SINGLE POST in this thread, noting the days and times that was required to sort out this one little detail!!! THEN, I'd have him edit the tutorial !!! :-P

Adding another Linux distro on another disk/partition isn't that hard to do, neither is changing the boot menu. As you said, handle that when you get to it.

Love your point of view!! And again, no problem, glad to be of assistance. I'm just trying to return the favor and meantime learning a lot too.

Kind regards,

Eric
