Woo hoo… Ubuntu running in VM

Ubuntu in

So we found the Parallels 3.0 uninstaller (lacking any response from Parallels support) and found our Parallels 2.0 .dmg package, and took 3.0 off our Core Duo Mini – its kernel panics making it a basically useless $59 ‘upgrade’, and decided to hope for the best with the older, but previously reliable Parallels 2.0.

Sure enough, it all just worked and we now have Ubuntu running under Parallels 2.0. I’m hoping we can get one or two other Linux distros installed, as well. I’m still miffed that my Win XP partition was completely wiped out by Parallels 3.0. Not good. But we’ll have fun getting acquainted with Ubuntu…
