I have spent (wasted) a whole day trying to install Linux on a stupid laptop (it is not even mine!).
Having gone down this Linux route a few times before with these stinking Toshiba 3110ct models, I decided that I was fed up with Debian. It installs fine, but it is a bear to actually use.
Plan B, I find a way to install Ubuntu. Life is good. Of course that did not last long. Stupid Ubuntu is just as miserable as Debian!
I have spent all day playing with 'root and boot' (my favorite diskettes), and I have got absolutely nowhere!
I am off to drink large quantities of beer! hahahahahahahaha
