Ubuntu Gutsy!

I finally installed Ubuntu Gutsy and got it working. I spent the whole night trying to move my windows xp installation from my SATA hard drive to my older IDE hard drive. I gave up by 3:30 a.m. so I just installed ubuntu on my IDE drivie.

After downloading the iso twice and burning it to a disk (also twice). I finally got the installer running but the screen was distorted (basically some of the left part of the screen was on the right, and some of the bottom part is above). I though it will be fixed once the installation went through but it didn't.

After searching the ubuntu forums, I found a similar problem and the fix: recofigure xserver.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Don't remove hal this time.
