There are 32-bit and 64-bit DEBs (and RPMs) that you can download on the following site
Requirements: See the website above. You will need the same architecture of flash installed as the package you have installed. I've only tested 64-bit package with 64-bit flash on a 64-bit system.
Download and install the .deb for your architecture. Make sure you have flash installed as well. It looks like it looks for the flash library at ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplugin.so
You will need a mouse for initial setup, as it will require you to accept the EULA and you will probably want to maximize the Hulu desktop. You will only have to do this once, as it save

Why should I choose Ubuntu Desktop instead of Novell Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 1, 2010
I'm ready to pay in order to have support for my linux desktop. The thing is, I'd like to get some feedback from the community - which is in my mind stronger for Ubuntu.
Here is what Novell says about Ubuntu (http://www.novell.com/products/desktop/compare.html):
Want to compare Linux distributions to see how SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop stacks up? Let's start with Ubuntu. Compared to Ubuntu from Canonical, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop offers several compelling advantages:
* Stronger support Novell has a rich set of services that enable enterprises to reduce risk and burden when adopting the Linux desktop. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop is backed by world-class Novell services including support, training, and consulting.

HowTo: Setup Ubuntu Desktop with LVM Partitions

The information in this thread has been moved to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuDesktopLVM
A thread for discussion of the wiki page only can be found here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...2#post12062142
This tutorial will help anyone who wishs to setup their desktop using logical volumes on a fresh install of Ubuntu Desktop only. You can use the Ubuntu Alternate image to complete this as well but you will need to set it up in a TUI (Text based-User-Interface).
What is LVM?
LVM stands for Logical Volume Manager (or Logical Volume Management). Instead of using all physical volumes for your system (hard to change, static), take one (or many) disk(s) and have that drive logically divided for expandability, better monitoring and all around better disk management on your computer.

HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 13, 2007
Recently I went out and bought myself a second hard drive with the purpose of setting myself up a performance raid (raid0). It took me days and a lot of messing about to get sorted, but once I figured out what I was doing I realised that it's actually relatively simple, so I've written this guide to share my experiences I went for raid0, because I'm not too worried about loosing data, but if you wanted to set up a raid 1, raid 5 or any other raid type then a lot of the information here would still apply.
2) 'Fake' raid vs Software raid:
When I bought my motherboard, (The ASRock ConRoeXFire-eSATA2), one of the big selling points was an on board raid, however some research revealed that rather than being a true hardware raid controller, this was in fact more than likely what is know as 'fake' raid. I think wikipedia explains it quite well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redunda...ependent_disks
Hybrid RAID implementations have become very popula
