This gallery will show you just how quick and easy it is to install Ubuntu 7.10 and have it up and running on a system. However, if you are running at 800 x 600, the bottom of the wizard screens might be chopped off. To prevent this, I switched to 1024 x 768.

Switching screen resolutions is a snap. Note the support for dual monitors. Nice!

I'll be using guided mode for the hard disk, so there's nothing to do!
