| LINUX 2 LAPTOP |
======================================================================
Installing ubuntu 9.10 (or Fedora Core 12) on a Toshiba Satellite
T135D-S1325RD laptop from a bootable USB stick.

-------------------------
SPECIFICATIONS:
-------------------------
Ram : 4GB
HDD : 320GB
O/S : Windows 7
USB : USB-stick (8GB).

AIM:
-------------------------
I wanted a laptop with 2 partitions running windows on one and linux on
the other.

---------------------------
METHOD:
---------------------------
1. Boot into windows.

2. Download ubuntu 9.10 LIVE-CD iso file (or FedoraCore 12 iso if you prefer).

3. Download unetbootin-windows-393.exe.

4. Insert usb stick and backup any data.

5. Run unetbootin-windows-393.exe, point to iso file, and click OK.

6. Restart and go into bios (F2) to switch boot order (usb-stick before HD).

7. Restart with usb stick.

8. Once ubuntu (or FC12) has started click on "Install from desktop".

======================================================================

Note ... you may need to run gparted in ubuntu from an xterm
if you already did a previous install, or to clean
away any cruft.

Note ... the wireless card driver on the T135D was a bit tricky
to find. Eventually the right bug-thread helped here.
