A couple of questions....
I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 and the other day I got the idea, wouldn't it be great to see what Kubuntu is all about.
So I downloaded it from the Meta Packages. Somehow I managed to mark that I didn't want to switch my desktop environment from gdm to kdm so it's not doing anything, except at the splash screen where it says "kubuntu" and is blue. It also includes a lot of extra KDE stuff that I didn't want, so I uninstalled it via Synaptic. However nothing has changed. I still get the blue load screen when I'm starting quasi-kubuntu, and I still have a dozen or so apps that I see that I don't want (Katapult, Kjobviewer, Kooka, Kpdf). Is there a way that I can do a "restore system state" in the same way it's done in Windows. I would just like to rewind the computer to a couple days before I botched it.
I used to have Windows Vista on a different hard drive, but deleted it. I'm now thinking about putting XP on that hd, or maybe partitioning that bad boy and making it a proprietary pimp. Right now though, when Ubuntu loads it brings me to a screen where I have to choose between a couple of different linux options, and windows vista. the commands to get into vista go like this
map (hd 0) (hd 1)
map (hd 1) (hd 0)
Lets say I want to modify this so it just loads straight to linux. What do I do?
