Default Wooohooo! My Ubuntu discs are coming.

I've decided to take the plunge. I got my free Ubuntu discs coming in the mail. It should be a few weeks however. But I'm looking forward to it. Then I can get dev'ing for the PSP as well. It'll be fun.

Is there anything I should learn/read up on before installing it?

I've got a Maxtor 300GB External HD. I'll probably just set it up with that. But my other PC has a 250GB internal, so if nothing else, I'll partition it and dual boot.

I'm mostly doing it so I can install the PSP Toolchain and maybe start developing some games. I heard somewhere that Ubuntu doesn't allow full write access to removable devices write away. Is it like, true?

Meh. I heard that it does let you write to things right away. And from others it doesn't. Ah well.

I have an 80GB ipod, Ubuntu worked fine with the Hard drive part.
