    Okay so I recently took the plunge and installed Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron on my MacBook 4,1. I partitioned my drive using Disk Utility, but only assigned about 15 gigs for Ubuntu; the guide explained that you can access your OS X drive from Ubuntu. I was able to do this, but I cannot open my User files because of permission issues.

    I have no worries of anyone using my computer, and I want to access my music and pictures from Ubuntu. Is there a way I can set my drive permissions to Read & Write with full permissions to all users?

    Thanks in advance,
    Lensflare

    You should be able to, I've done exactly the same thing that you have. Have you tried posting on the Ubuntu site forum? I did that whenever I had a problem and I got support almost immediately!

    Yeah good idea. I've posted there before when I tried to set up my Windows laptop. Of course, it had a UniChrome chipset so I could never get it working.

    Linux operating systems must hate me, because I'm having similar problems with my MacBook. I couldn't get my WiFi working, so when I restarted Ubuntu wouldn't boot. So I just erased the partition. I had the i386 (sp?) disc, so I sent in a request for a 64-bit CD.
