Although normal in installing a Linux distribution is to do with a Live CD (or DVD) and the traditional graphical wizard, you can also do a network install , and then only we have to use an image of a few Mbytes, for example the image of Ubuntu 11.10 we only occupies 23 Mbytes.
This installation method is very useful if you have a network connection acceptable as it allows us to select which want installed, we can choose our desktop environment is GNOME, KDE, Xfce or LXDE, or if we use our system as a mail server, web server, and so on. That is, our minimum image will help us if we want to install Ubuntu on a computer and Kubuntu another if you want without having to download or order two different CDs.

Once we have recorded
our image in a bootable our system, choose the language want, then tell the keyboard going to use, choose the country where we are and our repositories will be automatically created.
we configure the network connection
we configure the network connection(if access through a proxy can configure). Once at this point to determine our location configure the system time and we will partition the drive can choose the recommended option if that is our wish.

do we install we can only hope to finish the installation, restart our computer care to remove the CD to start and we’ll have our system fully installed, fully updated and ready to use completely customized to our liking PHP 5.x .

The implication of the study is that it significantly reduced the level of storage in the human brain, but at the turn increased the ability to use external sources to find information. In short, one person may not remember a specific fact, but where to read it .Anyway, the authors say they have not yet reached a level of dependency Total Internet as people are able to perform many tasks without having to consult previously on the computer . This basically means we are far from becoming a kind similar to Star Trek Bynars

connection cut left more than 3 million people without internet access for a period longer than 5 hours, which has caused great chaos in the country.
The woman was arrested, but later was released because of his advanced age.
Upon the episode, various Government spokesmen had to leave the crossing of the claims to calm the situation and explain the situation of the elderly.
Something to keep in mind is that while women was released considering his age, this freedom will only be taken into account until the day of the trial. On the other hand, if found guilty in that trial, it could be up to 3 years in prison for damaging state property.
