Ubuntu Ultimate 1.4 boot up very slow after install

GreetingsI've resently installed Ubuntu Ultimate 1.4 from the DVD iso file (http://ubuntusoftware.info/Ubuntu_Ultimate_1.4/).  The live DVD version worked perfectly.  I successfully installed it from the DVD and the first boot screen (with ubuntu logo and progression bar) loads just as fast as with the DVD.  Once past that, when the mouse shows up, it seems to take forever.  I let it run for over 10 minutes just to make it to the startup screen where you enter user and pass.  After entering user and pass it continues to run so slow that I finally gave up.  I've tried installing twice. My specs

  • HP X2100 workstation
  • Pentium 4 2.2 GHZ
  • 1.5GB Rambus RAM
  • 2 - 34GB Ultrawide 160 SCSI drives (no RAID setup)
    • C: drive - My main drive with Windows XP Pro installed
    • D: drive - partitioned (using Ubuntu installation) 26GB NTFS Primary, 8GB Linux EXT3 Primary, and 424MB Linux Swap Logical

How To Set Up A Facebook RSS Feed Reader Application For Your Blog

This guide shows how you can build an RSS feed reader application for the social network Facebook that will display your blog's/web site's RSS feed on the profile pages of Facebook users (that have installed the RSS feed reader application). Each item of the RSS feed will have a Share button so that people can share the story with their friends, and the application will have an Invite link so that people can invite up to ten friends at once to also install this feed reader application. I will use PHP5 to build the RSS feed reader application. To parse the RSS feed and generate HTML from it, I will use Magpie RSS. http://www.howtoforge.com/rss_facebook_app_php

Ubuntu on my Laptop

I installed Ubuntu Linux on my laptop. Now it is 100% unuseable. I can run only Ubuntu and can not install any other programs. I can not remove Ubuntu or any portion from my Laptop. I had to buy another harddrive. I installed the new harddrive but Ubuntu distroyed my BIOs. I used a Win98 install disk to FDisk and reformat the new drive. I copied the win98 command programs onto the new harddrive. I can not boot off my harddrive anymore. I can boot off the floppy but never the harddrive. MY $2000 laptop is now junk.
