comment How do I keep my alternate CD upgrade from using the network?
I tried running gksu /media/cdrom/cdromupgrade from the terminal, and it outputs WARNING: Failed to read mirror file at the beginning of the "Setting new software channels" step. Perhaps that has something to do with it?

Great troubleshooting question, but I am using ubuntu-11.04-alternate-i386.iso to upgrade Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit. Shouldn't be any problems there.

:) That's exactly what I did: see the second paragraph of my question.

In case anyone is tempted to ask, yes, I verified that the ISO file didn't have errors; I used Transmission to download and verify it.

I should also mention I'm not using the option that updates packages from the Internet during the upgrade.

comment How do I install Cheese 3.0?
So, what, they have GNOME Shell integrated into GNOME 3 libraries? Or are the GNOME 3 libraries (and not Shell) the things that would break Unity?

comment Alternative for Exchange 2007 mail and calender sync and shared + public calenders and folders?
I second Jorge's request. Please split these into separate questions. The Stack Exchange system can't help the best answers "bubble to the top" when you ask more than one question at a time.

comment How do I add a Windows Live account to Empathy?
Is your problem with understanding the process to add your Windows Live account? Or is it, instead, a problem with getting it to work (e.g., an error message, etc.)?

comment Text editor to edit 4.3 GB plain text file
I recommend editing your question to mention the fact that you want to edit the file. That would make it so people didn't have to search through comments to figure out your question and/or if your question is similar enough to one they have.

@Andrew That's shorter than my old password's length, so I'd be surprised if this is your issue.
