    I have a Ubuntu iso cd made and have tried making a dual boot but after rebooting after the install it comes up to a long list of errors and then reboots to the apple log in screen. Has any one on here used Ubuntu in dual boot or on it's own on a mac mini. Just wondering what I may be doing wrong?

    Not bothered looking through the forums yet, but I've had trouble installing 10.4 on a samsung laptop I have. Updating using update manager screws up, as does doing fresh install from CD, I just get black screens each time... I've started getting more skeptical about ubuntu recently I don't think it's ready for the real world yet and have gone back to 9.4 (I think), I only need it for casual surfing. I certainly wouldn't install it on any machine that was my main computer (i.e. my mini!). Good luck! Best, a.
