Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

I found herd 4 created a dual booting machine that worked fine, herd 5 broke the windows 2000 install, running MS's fdisk /mbr fixed it, so I assume it's the way they've moved the loader to the mbr not the first Linux partition, I'm going to spend some time trying to install GRUB to (hd0,2), as I've got 2 windows partitions.

Well I say spend, that's spend more on time in addition to the what, 2 hours I spent the night before yesterday? And the 3 hours trying to fix the Windows partitions boot into BSD, when it was of course the changed from herd 4 to 5...

And before anyways says anything, I know the whole of Grub dosn't fit into the MBR, you know what I mean.
