In brief, perhaps some people would like to recieve a free ubuntu CD before the holidays, but Shipit may take too long. Some forum users can burn their own CDs and mail them (and pay for the stamp) to those who do not own CD burners or do not have broadband internet access. Also, it is possible to download extra packages (like Xubuntu -xfce4) and make a CD for those who cannot download them themselves.

I am a student in Australia, running ubuntu on an old pc in my room. Problem is I only have a 3.8gb HDD, I regularly run out of space and cannot boot into X.
If anyone had a slightly larger capacity HDD to send me, I would be very appreciative.

I live in kansas, United States of America, and i've been running on windows 98 Second Edition on a network for quite sometime now. I want to switch and learn more in the world of linux. I would be greatful for a nice harddrive no less then 5GBs considering this 2.1gb slave drive i have is very slow and even though i got it for free its likely to fail like the last i tried since i have got them from my Votech class for Computer Maintence which i dont go to anymore since i moved v.v. Thank you very much for your kindness. ~Amber

I live in India. I would much appreciate if someone can send me a ram stick, its a very old computer PIII 550mhz. The RAM will help me install ubuntu. I can give more details if needed, about RAM type, but i really dont know how to determine it, so i mentioned my pc type. Maybe a oldest type of ram available ? :) (Menza says: EDO or SD ram guys :|)

=== menza@menza.org ===
I live in Kolding, Denmark. If anyone from Germany/Norway/Denmark/Sweden happen to have an old laptop they don't use, I'd be more than happy to recieve it for schoolwork, since I really need it - I won't mind paying for transport at all.


=== ramunazz@gmail.com ===
I was happy using ubuntu and suddendly one of my ram sticks went out.
So now i have 64mb of ram(Thats to low to run Ubuntu). My cpu is 700mhz.
So if anybody has unneeden Sdram (Stick says: Sdram p133, whatever that means) i would be more than happy to accept it. And i can pay for the shipping if it doesnt cost a lot of money, im in Lithuania, Europe so shipping wouldnt be hard.

Hi, I live in Kolkata, India. Does anyone have an old nVidia card that they don't use and are looking to get rid of? I am in need of a SM2.0 card (GeForceFX and up). I'll pay for shipping if required, of course. Thanks!

The Holidays last all year, for some people....

This is a wiki page to use for what is described here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=90650

To make a request for something other than what is offered, go to the bottom of the page:

In brief, perhaps some people would like to receive a free ubuntu CD before the holidays, but Shipit may take too long. Some forum users can burn their own CDs and mail them (and pay for the stamp) to those who do not own CD burners or do not have broadband internet access.

See: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AptMoveHowto

As well, some may have some useful things which are collecting dust but may be helpful to others to get Ubuntu up and running.

For example, a stick of 64 Megs of ram may be the difference between someone being able to run the installer and successfully install or not. In North America, we throw away a lot of thing that others may find useful.
