Setting up new desktop

Yes, I talked about it when I had a snow day, but the bad CD drive kept me from actually doing it, so today, finally with some free time, I started the install of Ubuntu 6.10 on the old desktop machine I had gotten from work. Install went fine, got all 138 software updates, and now I’m in the process of tweaking it, getting my Firefox extensions loaded, grabbing some other utilities, etc. so that I can use this almost as effectively as I use my laptop right now. I know I won’t be able to do everything the way I do on my laptop right now, but it’ll be an interesting experiment to see what kinds of things force me to pop open the laptop as opposed to using this desktop when I’m home.
