New computer

I finally got my new notebook its a MSI S271 with 100GB disk and 1GB RAM. The best of all is that I did not have to pay for Windows. So I saved 1200 Swedish crowns (about $170).
I have started right away installing Ubuntu Edgy. I am doing the installation by PXE-boot the machine and download the files from the net. I had have some struggling in the beginning to get it to boot using PXE, but I hope that will be solved with a BIOS update. One interesting thing during installation is that the wireless network was found before the classical ethernet.
