I am impartial in my ignorance. Downloading Ubuntu now...

the instructions seem pretty straight forward for making the Ubuntu USB stick. When I have that ready and I am booted into it, I'll post again.
Is there any special command I should use to boot into Ubuntu in this case, or just select USB legacy and select that drive when it appears at startup and then let it do its thing?

OK, something seems wrong with my USB bootable disk.
I first just took a USB disk I had on hand, deleted the files, followed the instructions (using Os X to make the bootable USB Ubuntu disk), and everthing seemed fine. But when I tried it in the mini 10v, it didn't see the disk.
I thought maybe the formatting of that USB stick wasn't right...
So I erased it and reformatted in Mac disk utility using Mac OS extended. Repeated the Ubuntu instructions, tried again. Same thing; the disk isn't being recognized by the chameleon startup.
Do I need to use a different USB stick or something? For some reason the boot screen in NBI (where you choose your boot volume) is not listing the Ubuntu disk.
thanks for your help!
