Netbook Installation...

Postby Gunmetal_Ghoul » Mon Mar 16, 2009 5:57 pm

I wanna some time soon replace my old 4-year-old laptop for a smaller and lighter netbook. I obviously don't want to use Windows XP on the thing and wanna know the steps involved into installing the Mint Main Edition on it. Is there a link to a tutorial for unetbootin or something with a little bit of hand-holding for hardware/wireless configuration for the install, etc? I'm venturous enough to try it out myself, but need some help.

Hi there:

I used this guide at PendriveLinux to make a bootable flashdrive:

Mint runs great on my HP Mini 1000 (1GB RAM, Intel Atom 1.60 GHz processor). Just ignore the "fixmint6.exe" silliness in the requirements and use fixmint.bat like it says in the directions. Everything should be usable right from the start, but doublecheck before installing. Good luck!
