Just use the Musky Mix and it's easy. It also has a link to a basic Ubuntu install guide including partitioning.

Frikkin Linux/Ubuntu. If these guys want to make it big time they have to get with the program and make it easier still for Windows users to migrate over.

Just wanted to create an ext3 partition, and point Ubuntu there and press install. Instead, I get root errors and mounting issues....had to go through a few google searches to realize that I needed a frikkin "/" in an advanced menu to install to the drive I frikkin wanted.

Think I got it but why could I not just point to a frikkin partition and press install like Windoze??
It's not any harder than it used to be just to get F@H to run, we've gotten spoiled...

If I can do it anybody can...

I'm trying a second install. If I come across any further problems or continue to stick at this one I'll have to create a help thread of my own. Right now the installer won't see the WD Black drive and partition I want to install to...only sees the WD Green drive I have. Funny thing is the LiveCD will see all the drives no problem. If it was a straight-up install onto one disk installed on the mobo then I would be sailing but I seem to be missing something and the threads and guides I have been point to don't seem to address it.

I haven't tried to install it alongside win yet so can't help there.

The article I read in a magazine did say to make sure to defrag win7 first otherwise it will hog all the partitions unless it's a new install also.

Have you tried disconnecting the green to see if it will make a difference...

Me too. All set up and I got a 6901. I'll report as soon as I get one on my 970.
