Laptops are Complicated

Posted on: September 14, 2008

I recently made a post on setting up my old LEGEND laptop (which, I will reiterate, is CRAP) with Linux and using it to practice PHP, etc. I am now installing Ubuntu Server on it, so I hope that it works. I spent hours last night trying to find out how to change the BIOS settings to boot from CD before the hard drive, and finaly worked out that I was just pressing the wrong button. Oh dear – the computer just spat about 10 error messages at me telling my that some files are corrupted. I guess I will have to re-burn the disk… I will update this as soon as I can.
