    I have the Ubuntu 6.06 Live CD and I am very pleased with it. I have a couple of questions though.

    1) I have gone to the Ubuntu Forums for help on changing the screen resolution. I did everything they told me and it didn't work. I heard from someone that you have to install Ubuntu in order to change the screen resolution. Is this true?

    2) Is it safe to install Ubuntu? Have you ever had any problems with Ubuntu?

    1. Yes, because you have to edit the xorg.cong file and you can't do it from the Live CD.

    2. Yes, it's safe. Ubuntu and Linux distros in general are safer than Windows. You can install it alongside Windows and share documents between both systems. You can have both on the same hard drive, but it's better to get a second one for Ubuntu.
