comment Can't write to external hard drive
Possible permissions problem. Try sudo touch path/to/mount/point/mynewfile and see it it works. If so its ownership. Who do you want to have access to the drive?

Sorry, I missed that. At 26 bytes there is nothing other than "in underwear and a shirt?" in the file so nothing to worry about there. What about owner and group info?

comment How to partition SSD+HDD?
you stated "You will want to copy /home and it's contents to a temporary location and copy it back after your done with the install." It's always possible to tell the installer to use the existing /home directory for the new installation's /home, but be sure not to format it. This removes the need to do anything with it after the install.

comment Disable fn functions on keyboard
From the link in my answer above you can download the latest version, V2.10 (GMET62WW). I don't know if this will add the functionality you need but IMO it is not a bad idea to use the latest version. You are four versions behind the latest, which was only released less than a month ago (27th March). Be sure to view the associated readme file.
