Installing Ubuntu Or Fedora From A Windows Or Linux System With UNetbootin

Version 1.0 Author: Falko Timme Last edited 09/29/2007

UNetbootin is a tool that allows you to install various Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, OpenSuSE, Debian, ArchLinux) from a Windows or a Linux desktop over the internet (i.e., you don't need to burn the Ubuntu, Fedora, ... CDs). Unlike the Ubuntu installation with Wubi, real partitions are created during the installation. In the end, you have a dual-boot system (Linux/Windows or Linux/Linux).
This document comes without warranty of any kind! I want to say that this is not the only way of setting up such a system. There are many ways of achieving this goal but this is the way I take. I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

1 Preliminary Note
In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to install Ubuntu Feisty Fawn and Fedora 7 from a Windows XP machine. The other supported distributions can be installed the same way. Of course, you can as well install the supported distributions from a Linux system instead of Windows - all UNetbootin packages are available as .exe (Windows), .deb (Debian/Ubuntu), and .rpm (Fedora, CentOS, OpenSuSE, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, ...) files - just install the appropriate package for your system.
UNetbootin is very similar to the Debian-Installer Loader. The difference is that UNetbootin supports multiple distributions and can be used on Windows and Linux systems.

2 Installing Ubuntu Feisty Fawn
Visit http://lubi.sourceforge.net/unetbootin.html and click on the Download link. On the SourceForge download page, you can find packages for all Linux distributions that you can install with UNetbootin. Select the package for Ubuntu 7.04:

On the next page, you can find the UNetbootin package for Ubuntu 7.04 for various systems (.deb for Debian/Ubuntu, .rpm for Fedora, CentOS, OpenSuSE, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, .exe for Windows, and .sh for Linux distributions that don't use .deb or .rpm. Select the .exe package and download it to your hard drive:

Afterwards, open the Windows Explorer and go to the folder where you've stored UNetbootin. Click on it to start the UNetbootin installation:

After the installation, you're asked to reboot the system. Do so now:

When the system reboots, you should now see the Windows boot menu. Select Ubuntu and press ENTER:

4 THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD DO

Very helpful info for all cell phone users


There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

FIRST
Emergency

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.

SECOND
Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to
drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other 'remote' for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

THIRD
Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

FOURTH
How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phon! e: * # 0 6 #
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends
