I am a new user of LinuxMint, though I have been using Ubuntu Linux for 3 years on a Toshiba Satellite. I also have a Dell Mini-9 that came with Ubuntu 8.04 on it. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the Dell version of Ubuntu so I have been trying to find something better. I did, it is Helena and it worked almost pefrectly out of the box. Since it does not have an optical drive I have been making live CD's on USB devices. I read in the installing tutorial for Isadora that it is preferred to burn to a CD. Is there any thing that I need to be aware of that may happen when using a USB device for the installation? I do have an external optical drive that I can use if needed. It is just not as convenient to use.
I am really impressed with the way almost everything just works with Mint. Thanks.
