@djeikyb But thank you so much for all your help and explaining how it all works, I have learned a lot. I'm also very impressed at how helpful the Ubuntu community is towards newcomers. IMO all that's left is the small matter of ironing out these technical crinkles, and the slightly larger matter of making Ubuntu look at least as good as Windows 7 or OSX.

Hi, I never actually tried your very latest instructions. They look very useful and easy to follow (even I could follow them!), but I'm afraid I've already given up with Ubuntu and gone back to the safety of Windows. After getting it to work (by moving cables about, rather than the clever updating kernel way) my system kept randomly freezing every now and then. Unfortunately that was the final straw, Ubuntu has been relegated back to a virtual machine on my Windows box now.

I tried all of that but it still couldn't find it. So I gave up and just plugged it in a 3Gb/s port, will find out in April I've they've fixed it. Thanks for all your help and tips though, learned a fair bit about the whole kernel thing.

@CYREX gparted does not show me the hdd, only the 60gb one. Do I need to reformat it or something? How would I do that?
