    Quynh, first, please read my post on the Lubuntu mailing list.

    Quynh, if there is any specific thing you want to bring up after
    reading my post, please feel free to address it. As of this message, I
    do not see any thing specific to address.

The only thing I could add is when I install to an USB stick is to
choose ext2 af file systems. I also don't use swap partitions to
economize disk space on the USB device (usually 4-8 GB).

Yes, I too don't add a swap partition to the usb drive, and generally speaking, it's not required for ram of 1 GB and above, except for hybernate and sleep. But, I use ext4 in the usb drive for Lubuntu, though. A good thing to do for ext4 at external drive is to add 'noatime' at the fstab for /.

I must add that I'm using Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 (Acer Aspire One
with one 8 GB SSD, ext2 file system) and Ubuntu Desktop (Acer laptops +
clone desktops, ext3 file systems).

That's quite some system you have.

Regards and take care - Goh Lip
