Installing Ubuntu on Your Netbook

In MCS-378, the assigned lab projects assume that you have installed the Ubuntu distribution of Linux onto your netbook (Eee PC 900HA). Please plan to have at least the basic installation done prior to our first lab day, keeping in mind that the process may take longer than you expect and may require consultation. You are welcome to install any other systems you wish, and you can choose whether to retain the Windows XP that comes pre-installed.
