I now have ver 2010 installed and working well. It is very impressive how all hardware is properly detected and configured. I did have one problem during installation that was probably due to newbie ignorance. The partitions I had were OK but since I needed to change the type to ext4, I selected "custom" which required setting mount point, type, etc., and then formatting each partition. To keep this short I'll just say that it took 3 tries and a reboot in order to get the partitions successfully formatted. It appears that my mistake was in typing in the mount point names rather than selecting from the pull -down list; even though they were the same name. If this is the case, it would have worked better for me if the pull-down list was the only option and type-in names were not allowed. Just a newbies observation.
I have some questions about firewall setup and networking but I'll put those in separate postings.
Thanks for the help,
