  1. K. i dled a basic format of linux from ubuntu. But i only have 2 screens, i cant do what the kool people do (the four screen thing =D ), and it looks really cheap. Am i supposed to download something ontu linux? XGL or something? can anyone give directions or sometin?

    (1 hour later)


    some people helping would really be great! *Tries to attract attention to thread*

    by the way, i burned ubuntu ontu a CD, and whenever i try logging into ubuntu it never works, it either freezes or just... glitches causing me to get annoyed. Does anyone have any help to give, or any comments to say? i would like to ask for any programs to install into ubuntu, im kinda new to the whole linux thing >.<
