my ubuntu problems

Recommended Posts

Question 1: Why are boot times so slow? Does available HD space have anything to do with it? The reason I ask about HD space is the fact that with Mandrake 10.1 the boot up was alot slower than with XP, but Mandrake was on a 9 gig patition while XP was on a 27 gig one.

 

Now Mandrake is gone and in it's place, on the same drive, is Ubuntu 5.04. This one is terrible at boot time. IT takes upward 2 or 3 minutes to get past that screen of ever changing data, then it finally gets to the login screen and everything is of amazing speed.

 

Why is it that it loads so slow?

 

Question 2: How do I mount an NTFS or VFAT partition? I seem to be unable to read OR write any of my three windows partitions. Two are on the same physical drive, the third is on another drive entirely.

What does this have to do with the Retrospect Backup software? I think you have posted to the wrong forum/website.
