Tux Machines (TM)-specific
One of the things I wanted to do this weekend was install Ubuntu on my Mac as a sandbox using Parallels as the virtual system. The install of windows XP last week was absolutely painless (amazing), so I figured it wouldn't be difficult to do a Linux disto, either.
So, because I figured the worst thing that could happen was that it'd force me to sit down and read the damn documentation, I downloaded an Ubuntu ISO, fired up parallels, created a virtual machine, and told it to install Linux.
