Re: Ubuntu release 3.o woody


You've just won the price for the the weirdest title of a mail on this 
- Ubuntu, although derived from Debian, has nothing to de with this list.
- Ubuntu certainly has nothing to do with Woody as it's based on sid.

We'll just assume that you're installing Woody. The number of CD's is 
consistent with that at least ;-)

I'm afraid that Woody is probably not a very good choice given your 
hardware as it's kernel and installer are quite ancient now and do not 
support modern hardware, certainly not SATA.

A better choice would be the new installer [1] for Sarge (that now looks 
to be really getting close to being released).
The RTC (real time clock) issue is a known issue [2] for Dells (although 
it's new to me that Woody is also affected) and has a workaround [3] for 
use with the new installer.
