Woohoo! I’ve just installed Ubuntu

I’ve just updated the previous post, but I’ll say it again:

Woohoo! I’ve just successfully installed Ubuntu 6.06 LTS.

Here’s how:

  1. Updated the BIOS to the latest version (08 August 2003)
  2. Ran the Live CD
  3. Used GParted to manually delete the current partitions
  4. Ran the Ubuntu installer
  5. Er…
  6. That’s it!

It’s now installing 186 updates … Woohoo!

Now … what Microsoft software is available for it? I much prefer Microsoft software to any of that homemade stuff. They’re a proper company and everything.

😉

p.s. I’m only teasing. I love Open Source software.
