Install Ubuntu on Dell Dimension e510

Every time I tried to install it, I was met with many obstacles. I received messages such as “I’m not going to start X, and I won’t tell you why” and “I won’t display this resolution for other unnamed reasons” from my beautiful new Dell.
Read in this blog how it was done.


Before I begin, I want to say that I am 99% sure that there is a better way to do this. I, however, do not know what that way is, so I want to tell you how I got it to work so that the next poor soul like me who comes along might be able to stumble upon this post and have some of his or her pain relieved.
