Ubuntu Linux on the Toshiba Portege 3490CT

Ubuntu

When I first got the Toshiba Portege 3490CT from an auction at work, my main goal for the machine was to install Linux on it. Searching the web for instructions didn’t give me enough details since I’ve never used Linux in the past.

I tried PXE netboot install and a detailed set of instructions posted on Ubuntu Forums. It didn’t work. I was then pointed to using a different set of inputs in the Tftpd32 program. I tried it again today and it worked. I raised my arms in the air when the Ubuntu installer appeared on the laptop.
