Creating an Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop VM on VMWare Fusion

Written March 23, 2009 at 11:59 MDT Tagged tools

This guide is mostly for me to remind myself how I got my current ubuntu 8.10 desktop edition installed.
I want to quickly make it very clear that I am “not” an experienced linux user, so this is my account of how I got my current install going. Any suggestions on how to repeat the process in a much more streamlined way will be greatly appreciated!! And now that I have been using it for a couple of months (sparingly), I know how to repeat the process for a server only installation, I just have not had the need to switch my vm as of yet.
Here it is:
