Ubuntu 7.10 on Dell Inspiron 5100

Well - I've been running Vista on my new laptop for sometime so decided to play with the new Ubuntu release on my old Dell Inspiron 5100. It was a very easy install!

I had to start from the CD in safe graphics mode but when the install was complete, Ubuntu offered to install the softmodem and wireless card automatically.

I pointed the wireless installer at the driver reccomended by the Ubuntu Wifi docs site and everything worked first time.

Nice! All I need to do now is find a way to improve how the fonts look in Firefox.
