comment Can I enhance the performance of ubuntu using a sd card by in anyways?
I too have tried this... not gonna work like you think. I have an older laptop sitting around with a pata 60GB drive and the sd was WAY slower. Mabey it might help as a swap drive since you will be using 2 drives, but I haven't tested it.

comment How to install zram on Ubuntu 13.04?
Just to clarify... you don't need to install zramswap-enabler or the ppa, the zram-config package is a meta-package containing the upstart job for it. If you want to verify that it is working, type mount at the command prompt and you'll see more fuse mounted partitions than before.

comment Trying to install Vista over Ubuntu
You cannot unmount the drive you are using... if you want to resize a partition, boot from a usb stick and use gparted on the drive.

comment When trying to run VirtualBox, why am I not finding a start-up disk?
Click on 'empty' and over to the right under attributes you see a little picture of a cd. Click it and you can select your iso/cd.

comment Can not unmount SDA partition in GParted
If you boot from a live disk, isn't that your SDA? Did you check the drive to make sure you are really selecting your HD?

Did you configure port forwarding on your router? If you didn't, when you try to connect over the internet, the router dosen't know where to send the connection request.
