Ubuntu on the Compaq Presario F700 (3)

The thing is in the making.

The old (the original that came with the laptop) hard disk drive with Vista pre-installed is out, and the new, larger one for Ubuntu is A Ok.

Pulling the HDD out it is the easiest hardware related "stuff" I have done on a laptop on a loooong time... 2 screws, then pull, 4 screws for the HDD's cradle, and the SATA adapto, presto, five minutes tops.

It is actually already installed, I'll post some screenshots later, installing Ubuntu was a piece of cake, everything went smooth, took less than 20 minutes for the install per se.

The biggest problem at the moment seems to be getting the god damn Atheros WiFi card working.
