First Night TogetherInserting
After 5 minutes you are greeted with a completely functional Live CD version OS. You have to run through 7 steps to install the OS. All are extremely easy, apart from step 4 where you have to choose a partition where the OS will be installed. Just that crucial step is confusing if you would like to manually choose a partition. I couldn't find an option to confirm my actions (deleting a partition and formatting). Clicking back and fourth between steps didn't enlighten me at all.
Kind of a bummer not getting it up on your first night together. Luckily I had some X-rated stuff in the form of an Ubuntu 5 installer disk to prepare the partitions. After that I reinstalled 7.04, without any problems at all.
Is that a mighty packed software package in your pocket or are you happy to see me?
