Installing Ubuntu Linux on a Macbook Pro

The target machine was a 2.16ghz Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro with Radeon X1600 video...
Yes, OS X is nice and I do like it, it’s hands down better than Microsoft’s operating systems and has some extremely nice unique features. I just happen to like Linux more for the tasks I do (No doubt Photoshop junkies disagree with me). OpenOffice runs way faster on Linux than NeoOffice runs on OS X. SSH/Sftp mounts are must for me (though MacFuse works decently nowadays!), Apache/PHP /MySQL and friends just work better, Java works better (try running Apache FOP with OS X, not only when running from terminal, it bounces Java icon in Dock, and doesn’t work at all when executed from PHP scripts. Maybe there’s some workaround. Maybe not). And GNOME with Compiz Fusion is just faster environment to work in (Finder sucks. It really does).
