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?

osdisc.com lets you order cd/dvd's for pretty much any distro you want. they don't have a phone number listed in their support page though.

comment Connecting through Remmina to X11VNC Server
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.

comment Inexpensive way to get Ubuntu LTS with 100% certainty that it has not been compromised
Even though it is unlikely for an iso to get 'infected' when downloaded from a safe site like ubuntu.com, you can buy one from osdisc.com if you want to... But then how do you know THEY are not 'infected'?

comment Is there easy and safe way to resize /boot
I would try edwin's suggestion first, your other option is to use a boot USB and gparted to resize /boot.

comment Trying to connection to a windows VPN
This is kinda unrelated, but a really good/free/easy VPN solution is hamachi at www.logmein.com. there is even a front end for ubuntu called haguichi with a ppa at www.webupd8.org Sometimes you just want it working now.

comment Migrating to a different distro, but keeping files
Pretty much, at least it is easier. Just be careful when you install. For example, installing ubuntu you would not select the "install ubuntu along side xxx" or whatever, but go to the "something else" selection instead, give / the partition you are sacrificing and format it, and give /home your home directory WITHOUT formating it.... Bear in mind that this is no replacement for backing stuff up.
