    Just out of curiousity.... How did you phrase your Google searches if you're having trouble finding anything on installing Ubuntu?

    I found this on my first search. It was the fourth link returned. The others were all related to installing Ubuntu too.

    OK. Don't phrase your searches the way you would in speaking. My search was two words also: ubuntu install. Having the correct words in your search makes all the difference. It's another one of those "arts" that takes time to learn.

    If you're having troubles finding something that should be easy to find such as instructions for installing a Linux distro try rephrasing your searches several times.

    i find that if you're looking for help on say "installing ubuntu" then it helps if you think of the way the info would be written.

    few people would write "help installing ubuntu" but more likely to include, " i'm going to tell you how to install ubuntu"

    hth! :tongue

    I would think that going to ubuntu's site and doing a search there would yield fruit but interestingly enough when I tried, I hit a dead end. Actually, I didn't use any instructions to install ubuntu. I just put the disk in the computer and followed the screen instructions. Installing the default ubuntu workstation is pretty much a snap.
