Corrections: Partimage is a semi-gui tool for simple use. Imaging a partition is self-explaining. I am afraid I have to add ntfs support now, and I also have to face to migrate my kubuntu either to investigate how to copy the /etc stuff, or how to use the rescue CD. So, chapter2 will be about that...

Kubuntu Installer is a P.O.S.

... or a little buggy to say the least... - no choices for installing GRUB on another drive than the installation target - partition resizing fails to work on another drive than HDA0 (access to Qparted from the setup is buggy) - Partition subsequently created with Qparted manually in EXT3 will be re...

That may well be. I'll try to solve it with Automatix. Trying to add a repository has already caused apt suicide. I could revive it though by deleting the offending line in the config file. FireFox however did Java immediately. I assume that Firefox has java already "onboard". As I seem to...

Configure AON DSL modem/router type Thomson Speedtouch 546

The AON firmware renders a lot of functions of the webinterface useless. Worst is that you are root without any PW protection once you enter the URL "speedtouch.lan". Assigning a PW doesn't help, neither does adding other users and changing the default user to one of these. Second thing th...
