Finally it's done! Some of the issues that came up are -
- The grub entry has been reset - so my Windows is lost again. No big deal, I had written about it earlier on my blog, made the changes and we are good to go.
- Ubuntu has become sluggish during booting, but once it starts, then we can roll along
- My earlier stint had left some confusion with kdm and gdm ... that is still there
Whew!! and a big Yaay!!
