Well things seem to be gathering some pace at last, 5 of us at the meeting today, Mike our host, Dave C, Les, Colin and Myself (Tony). Les was showing us how to create a bootable USB flash drive with Unetbootin. He downloaded an ISO of Ubuntu 9.10 then using this demonstrated how to create the bootable drive using the Unetbootin software. Les was using Crunch bang but this program will work in most Linux disros and there is also a Windows version available for those without a current Linux system.
Link to the software here:
I showed Dave the Wubi installer for putting Ubuntu Distros inside Windows and we successfully installed Ubuntu 9.10 onto his Windows 7 Laptop. More info on Wubi here:
We also discussed Drupal and other web and server applications, as Les knows a bit more of this he might like to add some info to this post. The web site is at:
Just to say I think Les will be writing up the next couple of meetings as I’ll not be able to attend for the next 2 weeks.
