5/5     Does anyone know how to do custom install of Ubuntu 10.04? I can't
        even boot it up to give me the menu to custom install and it
        keeps installing a bunch of crap I don't need. It's getting
        just as slow and bloated as Winblows install. Dear lord,
        I miss the old Ubuntu.

        \_ leanest install of Ubuntu is with 'ubuntu server' ( go find an iso).
           you can install graphical stuff later if you want.  in larger
           deployments, use 'preseed' or 'fai'.  dunno what the hell the hippies below
           this post are talking about.
        \_ If you're looking for an easy and minimal-friendly Linux, might I
           suggest Arch? It's easy to configure, and easy to either install
           binaries or custom-build packages. I highly recommend it.
        \_ What is up with the netbook remix?  Anyone using it for lt.wt.
           purposes?
        \_ I don't think Ubuntu does custom installs.  You could try
           the "Alternate Installer" though.  It's text based.  They
           used to have an alternate install for slower machines that
           would install XFCE instead of Gnome called Xubuntu.
        \_ this is probably what you want:

        \_ 5 (base 10) = 10 (base 5)
           5 ^ 1.0 = 5
           log (base 5) 5 = 1.0

11/11   lolz, in Winblows, when I move a huge directory to another directory,
        it would usually go half way before asking "This is a read only
        file, you sure you want to move it?" and 2 hours later I come back
        and have to click "Yes." Is there a better way to move Winblows
        files (without having that stupid prompt)?

2/6     Our parent company is considering forbidding us from taking laptops
        off the premises due to possible src code loss.  Considering that
        many of us work from home the majority of the time, this does not
        sit well.  We need to come up with a proposal for keeping the
        src (or entire disk) on an encyrpted drive.  I used PGP desktop
        a while back but never did any disk intensive activity (eg compilation)

7/29    If I use my own personal notebook at a company, airport, etc. or at
        someone's house going through their networks, how
        easy/hard/cheap/expensive for someone to monitor and capture my
        passwords, URLs, IM messages, etc. if these are not encrypted nor going
        through HTTPS and/or SSL?  I have both Winblows 2000 and XP.  I am just
        wondering if it's possible for them to have some specialized routers
