Okay guys,

I have successfully downloaded Unubtu 9.1. But, now I am unsure how to get the OS burned to a disk or on a USB drive. I also downloaded a program called usblive-creator. But, the problem is I don't know how to get a Linux system to run these programs once I download them. Guess I have gotten lazy with all the Windows/Mac wizards that install everything for you!

Any helpful hints/suggestions?

BTW, I haven't forgotten about posting pictures and Scratch programs. Will do soon. Right now we are gearing up for our TLA Presentation Friday here in Memphis. We are doing a program called "Scratch! A way to satisfy the itch for technology programming for teens." I'll post pictures and a gallery for that program too!

Thanks,

Hillary

When I upgraded my Linux I just basically re-imaged my computer, which wiped out anything I had saved (backed up first.) I made a bootable USB using unetbootin http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ with the new OS on it (my netbook doesn't have an optical drive.) I think I used the instructions on that website to make the bootable USB. Then I went into the BIOS and told the machine to boot off the flash drive, and the computer knew what to do. Are you just downloading the upgrade packages to your computer and trying to run them from there? I've never done that, but the Google might tell me how to do it...

Hi Hillary - sorry I'm traveling - and for some reason the Ning isnt notifying me of the new posts

Its probably easiest to use the CD
if you downloaded to a Mac then use the disk utlity to burn it to a cd I think it works pretty easy... but I always forget on Windows so look at this page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto
