this tutorial is awesome! I actually just put Ubuntu on one of my empty internal HDD's last night and it's pretty kool. This was my first experience w/ a linux based PC, it's definitely not noob friendly like windows haha. First thing that came to mind was Mac when I saw the machine boot up lol. I would like to give Red Hat a try as well, so i will probably just create a VM for it

Thank you, Tom! Good to know this still helps users. I just should find the time and update it, new versions of both VirtualBox and Ubuntu are out and the tut a bit outdated.

+1.

Linux mint is a good choice for Linux beginners and more advanced users alike who feel Ubuntu is not for them.

For some reason, my USB doesnt work in Ubuntu. It's not recognized. I've searched on the internet but no luck so far.
