is there anyway to maybe,like download the disc image of the Ubuntu disc? My mini came with XP,but I am a linux noob. I might install,or try to anyway,it,but Id rather have the Dell disc because it should 'just work' if you know what I mean...

if its a configured commercial version its probably under certain licenses meaning you can't just share it, but then it is Ubuntu. Someone should read into this before just posting it willy-nilly.

Alternatively, it could be the possibility that the Ubuntu shipped with it is just a natural 8.04.1 ?


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

On this page is a link to Dell's files for linux the reinstall cd for Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 can be found there. I don't know if it is infact the same used for the mini but I am planning on trying it.

http://linux.dell.com/

A more direct link:

It's not the same version. In fact, that link doesn't even go to the Netbook Remix version of Ubuntu. You can download Ubuntu Netbook Remix (which is what the Mini has on it) here:

If anyone figures out how to do this, post a tutorial and you'll be famous. Note that this won't be the same as the Dell version since Dell added stuff to the Netbook OS.
