I just now installed the new Full Monty on a USB drive via netbootin. Everything is painfully slow, my CPU (2.8ghz) becomes strained, and in either Firefox or Chrome nothing is possible. Operation goes from slow to a dead freeze, requiring a hard, cold boot.
The machine is a Dell GX520, 2.8 gigahertz, with 1G RAM. The system was put by unetbootin on an 8G USB drive. Might I still chance a HD installation on this machine -- I have a 10G partition, ext4, prepared?
