Correction: On page 32, the boot option aspci=force should actually be acpi=force. Sorry for any problems!
This month, we’re proud to introduce a new column, Command and Conquer. We’ll be taking a look at the command line and hopefully how to make it a little less scary for you.

- Command and Conquer – Man pages, and what not to type.
- My Opinion – Excited About Ubuntu in South East India
- MOTU Interview – Soren Hansen

On page 32, it is suggested that the user use the option ascpi=force. This is the wrong option. It is acpi=force. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acpi
Secondly, the user is told to put the entry under the xubuntu line in his/her menu.lst. If the option is put there, it will be overwritten next kernel update. Look for a line starting with defoptions and add it to the end of that line. Then run sudo update-grub. Every kernel update, the update-grub utility regenerates menu.lst. It will read the defoptions line and add thos entries as kernel options automatically.
Rob: corrections added. Thanks!
There is a follow-up to the original “Create an Ubuntu Plug ‘n’ Play Zone, Create Your Own Server” where the author covers a few more specifics to round this out. You can find it here: http://ubuntulinuxhelp.com/ubuntu-linux-plug-n-play-zone-revisited/ and it’s called “Ubuntu Linux Plug ‘N Play Zone Revisited”. 🙂
