comment Couldn't find package dd
@mikewhatever dd is part of the default Ubuntu install being part of coreutils. How is this off topic???! Informing the OP that dd is probably already installed (and explaining that dd is part of coreutils) and guiding him on how to use it is the correct approach to this question not closing it as off topic!

comment Installing the most recent version of the Z shell
Don't worry about it and just install (or keep) the zsh version on the Ubuntu repository. Most of us can not tell the difference, if any, between one minor version of our favorite shell and another. And yes, I do use zsh as my default shell.

comment Startup commands with zsh as default shell?
I don't think your question is very clear. What are you trying to run at login. I do agree with the answer from "The Lord of Time" to not worry about it; but I am not positive since I am not clear what you are trying to run at login.

comment Safe remove of grub and lilo instead?
While it is more primitive than Grub, sometimes that works out as a plus. I certainly would not describe it as "woefully inferior". On one of my machines with multiple distributions Grub2 is so messed up it is unusable except for a single distribution and I wasted 2 days trying to fix it. LILO on the other hand works beautifully and allows me to access all of the distributions on that disk.
