My Installation

The installation of ubuntu on my system from Ubuntu 6.10 DVD was a simple task. I got the Full GNOME Desktop of Ubuntu while installing.

Installation is just 6 mouse clicks. If you find difficulty you have the complete OS in front of the install screen with which we will get help from the internet/and help screens.

I have a Debian Linux already installaed on another hard drive of my system – very stable and long lasting OS in my system. Other new trail OSes will go on a last partition of my first Disk. Ubuntu 6.10 gives a faster Linux for Multimedia desktop purpose for me now.The Game “Half Life 2” works with better performance than windows even in Cedega. With Nvidia driver installed it works amazing. Still I cannot find an alternative to my previous Debain. It is configured and updated lot for working on my system :).
