i'm going to build a computer with your how-to guide. my neighbor gave me an 11 year old computer with a 4.3 gig hard drive and 64 mb of ram (2, 32mb sticks) i salvaged the box, which i'll paint. ivory isn't my color. there's not a dent or a scratch on it. i'm going to put ubuntu on it as the os. thanks for doing what you're doing.

my best is like 1.5 min but wow you got that one dialed lol but that was on a older machine running win xp though so i'm not sure what i could get mine too. i know that my laptop booting ubuntu is like 3 min counting logging in not sure what the boot would be without having to log in would be yet though but on my laptop with vista it's like 10 min to fully boot

jack,

You have got to be kidding me concerning your boot times ??

This is just an old Asus XP3 machine running with NO O/C on a Dual Core @ 3.00

Will admit I have networking addresses and mac pre-assigned plus never start any programs running in the background plus no login set and run in Pure Classic Mode but even excluding those items, boot times should never be over about 25-30 seconds. Ubuntu takes a little longer than XP does because of no raid but I still don't understand your long boot times ??

Kindest Regards,
Rick P. ♣

Aleeve,

I guess it is just the way I setup machines by habit and the tweaks I've leaned over the years. (MS) said somewhere that boot times for their O/Ses should never exceed 30 seconds but I can't remember when or where I read that so don't quote me as I don't have the MS reference.

Kindest Regards,

i think it's because of my anti virus at start up that uses about 60,000k and some other things that start up

Jack,

That is probably the best answer.

Also why I have said many times on the forum that "each is free to run their own machines as they wish".

The reason HW and SW is "FUN" is that there is a "Billion" ways to do things :))

Kindest Regards,

Wow . . . it works good. Just copy the direct url from photobucket and press that image button. There may be a script warning in IE7 . . . just OK it and then try again.

You done good, Geek . . . thanks.

Now I'm going to test that Link button:

Photobucket here

Cool . . .

Again, about that script warning in IE. You may get that, and just allow scripts to run "temporarily" and then try again. Not sure why you have to go through the second iteration, but I guess that's just the way IE security settings are for me. Haven't tried it in FF yet.

BobJam, if you setup HTG as trusted site (but uncheck the marked box), then you will get rid of the IE warning message.
