1:00 A.M. Update: If anyone is planning on Dual Booting with "Dapper Drake" be sure to download the server install cd. Yes, you can install from the live/install cd but the interface, however graphical, is confusing and useless. The server cd reverts back to the tried and true text mode that I can figure out.

6:00 P.M. Update: The live/install cd is the way to go. I have downloaded and tried to use several damaged "server" ISO's and the live cd is the only on that x-server will engage. Yes it is confusing. That is why it is 14 hours later that I am just now getting ubuntu installed on my laptop. Now to figure out 915resolution.

8:30 P.M. Update: Still working on 915 resolution. I giggled like a school girl when I decided to test the FN keys, and they ALL WORKED! I had to install a separate program to get those to work in windows and ubuntu works out of the box. Go figure.

12:46 A.M. Update: 915 resolution is simpler than I was making it. It is especially easier when you read the right directions. Now if I can find the xorg.conf file. I should know this, but I don't. :(

3:53 P.M. Update: How many different versions of the same thing are out there? Not one of these directions work!?!?!

4:30 P.M. Update: HAPPY DANCE!
