comment Bigger space for ubuntu 11.10
You can use Dejá Dup to do the backup for Ubuntu- it's installed by default with it. For Windows, I believe it also includes a tool, and some googling should find it for you, though I don't know what it is off hand. With the CD, I'd make it from the Linux side, and then reboot.

comment Confused about what makes up the Ubuntu GUI
Gnome Shell is the same type of thing as Unity, yeah. Compiz powers Unity's effects and transitions. Gnome Shell uses Mutter to achieve the same. Gnome 3 works fine with Compiz; Gnome Shell is the part that doesn't. I believe Gnome 3 uses GTK3, yes.

comment Force wget to use actual filename
My thought had been that the script run in the browser would use the API, so to do it without the browser, one would have to recreate the script. Interesting that wget has a flag for it.

comment Ways to setup Ubuntu
Also, if the two hard disks are internal, you should be able to tell Ubuntu to use one of them as /home during the install, which would set it up so that your user directory was stored there.

comment How can Unity be made more friendly to multiple monitors on a laptop?
Okay, thanks. I've added /var/log/Xorg.0.log and lspca -nn | grep VGA. Is there anything else I've missed?

The files it looks like are needed are quite large - is there a way to upload them, or otherwise hide the text content from those who don't want to see it?
