Default Dell Mini 9 Ubuntu Restore iso: Offial download from D - 10-25-2008, 10:05 PM

Go to http://support.dell.com

Select the mini 9. Select Ubuntu as the OS. Among the choices for updates there is also that of downloading the Ubuntu DVD from Dell.

I am having some problems. I got my mini today and want to check out the ubuntu os. I have two problems with this. 1) my isp sucks and downloading a torrent is not an option 2) when I try the link direct to the file as well as go through the dell support page I am getting

"This webpage is not found.

No webpage was found for the web address: ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/OS/Inspiron_910_Ubuntu_A00.img"

therefore my questions are: does anyone know the updated link on the dell ftp server? would it be possible for someone to upload this file to rapidshare? or if I gave a login for my private web server would someone be willing to upload it there for me?

I went ahead and stickied this thread. Nice to see Dell finally posted the image on their servers.
