I have a computer modem / tower a HP Compaq Presario running a x86 processor.
It died because I didn’t have a license key for Windows Vista, so now I don’t have a desktop IDE (integrated desktop (not development / data) enviroment).
So I would like to know how I would install Ubuntu from the downloader, is it a boot image? If so how do I use it on a dead Operating System?
Yes, I have discs (write-once) but not many DVDs, I know the file size is 700MB.
I just need a Linux web server running Ubuntu Server Edition from download.
I refuse to wait for disc and need installation ASAP (As Soon As Possible)!
The installation package I want is Ubuntu server, LAMP should be available (by the way I hate Apache and will install Abyss for Linux over it), but I would like MySQL and PHP at hand (not ASP.NET, ASP.NET only works rarely on Kubuntu machines (personal experience).
I liked the looks of Linux, it isn’t like Windows it is kind of like what I need, but not the full ticket like Mac OS X and Windows (even though I have a Mac and Windows Vista machine already).
Sorry if it is TOO much information, but I know it is a question and no problem from installation / download has been made yet, so before I install and download and no doubt end up with a problem, where can I get a Windows disc burner?
By the way, what is LaunchPad?
I’ll rephrase that, I want to download Ubuntu, but Windows Vista is in a limited state as it has not be registered with a license key, which was never purchased.
So I do not have a desktop but I do have application access, like Windows Help, Explorer, Installer, etc.
Tommorow I am going to get it the box setup, turn it on, etc.
Then I will download a ISO file to disc image burner (700MB).
Can you answer this question: Can Ubuntu boot from a DVD? I mean it stores more data.
Can it also be a write-once burn as well?
I have 2 DVDs available and 5 CDs, I do not wish to use them all.
I have 0 DVD-RDLs.
I just hope it works, after the machine is setup I will download Ubuntu under my 54MBPS connection via the router (original connection is 1,024MBPS and 100MB), so it should be fairly quick.
Then I will need to burn it right?
After that I will install Ubuntu from the burn, then what happens?
I re-insert the disc and boot it as an installation at start-up, or does it go straight into it?
It will be server edition with LAMP.
Plus, I will use Abyss Web Server for Linux on it as it uses alot of programming languages.
If Kubuntu works better, does it?
As long as Kubuntu has PHP, MySQL (or I download it) and has compatibility for Abyss Web Server, this maybe the wrong forum, but I only want, what I need.
Does some Windows programs work on it alright?
If so, can I will install that instead, then rename all my posts containing ‘Ubuntu’ in this topic to ‘Kubuntu’, okay?
Please reply, I need community support!
