5.1 Live boot process. Well, I've learned my lesson, and this blog
entry is living proof, as I'm writing it from an Ubuntu Live session on
my laptop (any spelling errors are due to the crappy laptop keyboard;
next up for this little project is a KVM switch). I've got wired Web
access through the company network (no access to the Windows-based
company shares yet, but that's for later), and I'm surfing hassle free
with Firefox—all of it plug-and-play with absolutely no configuration
on my part.
I'm almost ready to go ahead and install the onboard version, but my
cautious nature says I should play around on Live a little longer. Ah,
who am I kidding? Rushing headlong into technical projects for which
I'm wildly unqualified is what this blog series is all about. Next
stop, a failed install!
