    It's a simple OS.. it'll seem weird to you at first, because it is VERY different from Windows.. but once you get the hang of it, it's not hard at all.

    I just sent you another PM w/ some basics about the package manager and how to use it...

    Like I said.. use the Live CD a couple days for the stuff you generally do, if you like the idea of it, I'll talk you through setting up a Dual Boot system(where you'll have a choice between XP or Ubuntu)...

    Yeah... would've been quicker, but ran into some issues figuring out how to make his PC boot the CD... okie didn't know how, and I had a heckuva time tracking down the manual for his PC...

    Only to find out, Okie had his asset tag memorized(probably from calls to Dell ;)), and gave me that, which allowed me to track it down.

    Good deal..

    Just remember, if it seems like it runs a little slow, remember, it is running from the CD... On a machine w/ the specs yours has.. You'll see a pretty dramatic performance difference between the live CD, and an installed system...
