    Email/PIM Application
    I have become a [url=http://www.lockergnome.com/nocturnalslacker/2010/11/16/i-hate-thunderbird-3-x/]bit disenchanted[/url] with Thunderbird/Lightning recently and was wondering if there are any other viable alternatives out there. I am looking specifically for a PIM app, but a decent email app w/ built in PIM would be OK, too. What do you use? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. ~Eric

    RE: Getting a CD to boot on my computer
    The first thing I ask in situations like this is are you absolutely sure you burned the CD/DVD as a bootable image... [b]not[/b] a data disk?

    RE: Understanding the disk utility
    A hard disk can ONLY have 4 Primary partitions, one of which can be sub-divided into Extended partitions. From the looks of what you've described, you have: Primary partition 1 - 103 GB - NTFS - VistaOS Primary partition 2 - subdivided into three extended partitions: Extended 1 - 64 GB - NTFS - Data (probably Vista backup or other use) Extended 2 - 85 GB - ext4 - Linux (your Mint installation) Extended 3 - 3.7 GB - swap - for use with Linux Unallocated space - 64 GB - This can be partitioned and used for any purpose you'd like. A common storage partition accessible to both Vista and Mint might come in handy. And as mfillpot says, gparted is a great little application. There is a graphic version (possibly already installed in Mint) in the Mint repos. Luck!

    RE: Which version to download
    He's installing Debian, from the looks of it. And yes... the AMD64 is the version he wants. :)

    RE: How To Disable Onboard Graphics For GeForce 8500GT
    Drivers. Drivers. Drivers. Install the Nvidia drivers for your card that are available in the Ubuntu repos. You should be fine after that. I run a similar card on my system, by the way. :)
