eroniusmaximusHello People.01:53
eroniusmaximusI would like some help,01:59
eroniusmaximusI'm new to Linux and I want to know how to install Edubuntu01:59
LaserJockare you wanting to put Edubuntu on regular machine?02:00
LaserJockor do you want to create a thin client server?02:00
eroniusmaximusregular laptop02:00
eroniusmaximusduel boot - so that i can use XP too02:01
eroniusmaximusi downloaded the Edubuntu ISO,02:01
LaserJockok, have you burned it to a CD yet?02:01
eroniusmaximusnot yet02:02
LaserJockwhat version did you download 6.06 or 6.10?02:02
LaserJockso do you know how to burn an .iso image?02:03
eroniusmaximusi have to get my ass out of bed to go to the convie to get a CD tho,02:07
LaserJockso right now XP is taking up the whole hard drive?02:09
LaserJockok, well you'll want to make some room first02:16
eroniusmaximusdo i just stick the linux CD in and it will repartition and install and do everything02:16
LaserJockwell, it can02:16
LaserJockbut it's safer to resize the XP partition from XP, in my opinion02:16
LaserJockI used Partition Magic to do it with my laptop02:17
LaserJockso you want to be very careful with partitions02:18
eroniusmaximusthe drive is NTFS, is that ok02:18
eroniusmaximusi repartition with Partition Magic and leave several Gigabytes unassigned, or?02:18
LaserJockhow big is your hard drive?02:19
eroniusmaximus25gb 25gb 2.5gb02:20
eroniusmaximusc d e02:20
LaserJock1 hard drive with 3 partitions?02:21
eroniusmaximusi dunno, the laptop came like that02:22
LaserJockhmm, I'm guessing so, laptops generally don't have more than one hard drive I don't think02:22
LaserJockso do you have stuff on all 3?02:22
LaserJockcan you move stuff to make one free?02:23
eroniusmaximusill do it on D02:23
eroniusmaximusnot empty,02:23
eroniusmaximusbut D currently has 8GB free02:24
LaserJockI'd try something like Parition Magic then. That's a fairly complicated partitioning structure02:24

nixternalAlrighty, I have gone through and cleaned up the Handbook, added a little content, and straightened out the chapters.09:13
nixternalThere are still quite a few sections needing someone to adopt them and rock and roll09:14
nixternalI also fixed the Makefiles to start building Edubuntu docs again. I need to fix the sidebar at doc.ubuntu.com to include Edubuntu docs. So far so good though09:14
highvoltageedubuntugirl: nixternal++09:15
highvoltagenixternal: do you have a link perhaps, or is it in subversion somewhere?09:16
nixternalsubversion is on the Ubuntu Doc Project server now09:20

bronze"tree-age"  pruning a corrupted B-tree.09:32
Burgundaviathe really fun part of about compiz is the sheer number of non-standard packages09:33
Burgundaviathankfully the xgl craze has died away09:34
Burgundaviamostly I just have to deal with gandalfns packages now09:34
nixternalalrighty, release notes updated, doc.ubuntu.com sidebar updated, and working on creating the initial Edubuntu 7.04 doc package09:47
