HELP PLEASE - cant get Ubuntu on my computer!

Hello everyone,

So about a year back I had ubuntu and xp running as a dual boot on my Asus eeepc 1000hd. I had nothing but problems, so I deleted ubuntu. But I cant remember how I got ubuntu on here in the first place.

I dont have a optical drive, or a floppy drive, and Ive tried every method with a usb flashdrive but I cannot get ubuntu to work, I cant even get my computer to boot from the usb.

When I installed ubuntu last year I didnt have a usb flashdrive and I got it on here, but I cant find any resources on how to do that again.

How do I install ubuntu on my eee pc 1000hd without a cd drive, floppy drive, or usb?

I appreciate your help in advance, and I look forward to being done with any microsoft software.....and being free from it for the rest of my life.

laptop is Samsung running 9.10 ubuntu

really need some help here

OK so ive wasted all my cd-r trying to install and boot ubuntu 9.10 on my hp laptop. the i386.iso. well anyway, I put ubuntu on a flash drive just so i could have an os because i already deleted windows and such. Is there any way for my to use the ubuntu thats the removable os right now to get an actual OS of ubuntu onto this computer.

boot question

Hi
I have an external 4 port usb2 hub with my printer and external HD attached. The first time I boot up the system it never gets attached. ( I can do a lsusb command and the hub does not show) If I then do a sudo reboot it comes back up with the usb hub and HD working. Why does this happen? What changes on boot up the 2nd time? I also would like to fix this but right now I'm simply wondering how this happens. Does udev have something to do with this? Thanks Roger

Error 18

I've been looking around and it seems that most users encounter this problem when they are installing ubuntu and windows to the same harddrive. I've had my comp running dual OS for almost a year with no problems and then this morning my laptop suddenly froze while playing music and the following reboot prompted the "grub loading error 18". It's a shitty top but Ubuntu runs great on it.

(Presario V2000, AMD Turion 64 Mobile, 1800MHz with 512MB system memory, PhoenixBIOS F.21).

I'm at a complete loss. I lent out my ubuntu disk to a friend and can't get another for a while. I also can't find my windows XP install disk which I'm sure is around here somewhere. I hate to be so nooby but I have to present a seminar on Monday and without my top I'll be forced to work on it all at school..which would suck the big one. Also .. It's never cool not to have a working computa. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Lost User Name and Password after fresh install

I had took this installation into my hands as a beginner and failed to keep track of my user name and pass word due to other computer complications and not using paper.

I was given a installation disk version 9.4 if i do recall

Fully installed over winXP

Was very unsure with the installation to begin with as it was my very first ,i was able to log in until i shut down the machine and tried using it the next day.

I do not have this installation disk anymore as it was loaned to me.
The computer has been sitting for some time now and has been pretty much rendered useless seeing how i can not fix this with out some assistance. It boots up to a black screen sometimes freezes and other times it boots up to the usual ubuntu user name and password fields.

I wish to get this machine back up and running some how any advice?

Verizon UMW190 Global Modem installation

I am unable to load working drives for the Verizon Wireless UMW190 Global USB Modem in to Ubuntu. The modem works very well in Windows.

I had Verizon to contact the manufacture for assistances and I was told that there is software but it is only for business with 25 lines or more. Think this is a bunch of bull and need assistance in this matter.

Sincerely DarkVadar.

Problems when trying to download updates

So when I am trying to download updates through my Synaptic Package Manager, I get all the way through except at the final file when I receive this error:

GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net hardy Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 39456311108B243FFailed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/dists/stable/Release Unable to find expected entry main/binary-lpia/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I am a total Ubuntu n00b, 100% thrown into this OS without a clue as to what I'm doing which has been fun albeit challenging and so I am at a complete loss as to what this means or how to fix it.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
