I am setting up ubuntu-7.10-alternate-i386.iso on my machine using Microsoft Virtual PC 6.0156.0.
I have to use ubuntu alternate for my install iso because I only have 256mb of memory on my 1.2 Ghz Thinkpad T-23 laptop.
The alternate uses a text based install so I don't know how to set the "Safe Video" mode during the install to get proper video (I requested 800x600 but that was not good enough). I have instructions for configuring the kernel for safe video but I need to get to console mode login without a splash screen so I can edit the kernel configuration.
The instructions I found here on howtogeek to set ubuntu not to show the splash screen indicate I should edit a file. But how can I edit a file when I am installing ubuntu into the VM from an ISO image?
So I need to know which files to edit, how to get to them from my iso image and then end up with an iso image which will install into the MS VM and run in safe video mode.
Thanks for the help.
