First Impressions of a Linux Newbie about Ubuntu
I have tinkered with Linux in the past (Caldera, SuSE) back around the turn of the century. I even put together a document on how to get the video to work on a Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop (not all original material, but made step-by-step directions for anyone who could follow directions). But I wouldn't say that I am very knowledgeable about Linux in general. I've tried twice this year to compile a kernel and failed at it. I wiped out my master boot record on one hard drive while trying to restore it on another hard drive.
