I am a long time Ubuntu user on my laptop, but I have been hearing a lot of great things about Mint. I am wanting to switch to it on my desktop. The problem is, no matter what Ubuntu derivative I use, I get the BusyBox "error" with the Live CD boot. I have tried all_generic_ide and all of that. I think the issue may be that my Windows partition is an nForce RAID 5, and it kills the live boot because it can't read from any of the drives. However, I am trying to install on a SEPERATE drive from the RAID array. I THINK the solution for getting an Ubuntu system on my machine will be to use the Ubuntu alternate install CD. However, I REALLY want to run Mint! I know that with OpenGEU you can install that distro on top of any successfully installed Ubuntu system using their repos. Is it the same with Mint? Can you install it from repos on a plain Jane Ubuntu system? Are there any other options?
