Ok, Wintendo (and sweet, sweet World of Warcraft) is up and running again. I checked the MD5 of the ISO (f57c1935b04546ced05f4e8b3d6fdea8) against the one that you guys list it as, and that checks out. So I'm gonna try burning it ONE MORE TIME (:D) (there should be no need to re-download it as the MD5's match up, right?), and then I'll restart and try it one more time.
I *REALLY REALLY REALLY* can't wait to get Mint up and running. I am *SO SICK* of living in Bill's world
. I tasted Linux for a little while on an old gateway lappie I have, and it was sweet. But the hardware support wasn't there (that's why I got a Dell). But the Dell isn't much better. Next time, I'm gonna spring for the good stuff (either a MacBook, or something from System76).
