I've seen lots of those so far,, the problem we've seen in these e-mails
so far is, these instructions can be difficult and out of reach for
someone who is not a command line guru without lots of hand-holding.
What is *really* needed is a little Icon in the Administration menu,,
well, two little Icon. One says "Make Boot/Rescue Floppy" and "Make
Boot/Rescue CD" (I know you can use the install CD, but wouldn't it
make sense to create a boot medium that will just boot right into your
existing Ubuntu system in case boot records or menu.lst get messed up?)
The steps for either should be simple enough to script.
