I have briefly tried other distros but the one I use almost exclusively is Slack. Having have read some good things about Ubuntu, I recently downloaded downloaded it and ran from CD. Although finally getting to the Gnome Desktop was, shall we say, sluggish
, the overall experience was very pleasant. I was especially pleased after discovering that my Wifi Network was automatically detected and configured
Based on this positive experience, I have thus decided to install Ubuntu on my laptop which is up to its neck in OSes running XP pro, Vista, 2 Slacks (yup
), a recovery partition etc
. I am planning to use one of the Slack partitions, which mostly acts as a testing environment, to install Ubuntu. However, it is logical volume and I wondering whether Ubuntu can be installed and booted from a Logical partition. I recall trying to install a distro once (Old redhat or Mandrake I think) which complained when I attempted to place it in a non-primary partition. I hope Ubuntu is less restrictive.
P.S. I am booting Slack from Grub so it should be no problem adding Ubuntu to the list.
