I went into Another branch of Smiths over the weekend ( forgot It was Mothers day, Rush rush rush) And couldn't see any copies of Linux Magazine anywhere. I'm hoping that My request hasn't deprived the public of the potential of Ubuntu, (which I'm very pleased with by the way, having Installed it on my no1 Pc this weekend.... but oh god it's so brown).

There were a few copies left when I picked up mine. I went around
about dinnertime 12 pm - 1:00pm on Saturday.
As for Ubuntu. I've finally got it installed on a PC WAHEY!!!!!!!
But how on earth do I set up my modem???? I've gone through the help
pages and I cannot find any reference to it. It also seems to be
stuck in 600x480 resolution despite stating only 800x600 and above res
in the set up. The video card does support it and so does the
monitor. They both work fine with my SuSE or Mandrake tin.
