Yes yes yes, finally you say. Okay the guide is finally here. Installing Ubuntu Linux version 9.04. Okay maybe not Ubuntu in its normal clothes but Linux Mint 7 Gloria. Let the version numbers not confuse you. Linux Mint is a project to build an Ubuntu build that works completely out of the box, so it also includes proprietary (closed source) drivers etc. It is my personal favourite distribution I use it at work and at home. In South Africa especially with bandwidth limitations you want to have something like this. Just works.
