You can also order the 64 CD per the usual Ubuntu offer - which is what brought me to have their distro in my pending tray, it just saves that bit of bandwidth and is so friendly that you get to save your media and have a nice lil set in printed sleeves..... I know it's not what you asked Perris - but for others who come to the thread see here if that's what you want... :cool:

Bear in mind that any CD's you order now won't ship until a couple of weeks after 'Hoary' is released, which is going to be sometime in mid-April.

That's what the Live CD is for - to play with it without actually installing it. :)

I cant get Ubuntu to work on my machine.

It boots up and loads Ubuntu and does all its work. A screen with Ubuntu and a loading bar shows and completes then goes to a black screen with a "_" flashing then reboots and continues the cycle :dead:

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
