Snag #2: so @Danfly09 helped me to get the Appliance installed alongside my Lubuntu install, on a separate partition. Everything appears to work OK, except that I keep getting errors when updating. It seems my apache2 has unmet dependencies. Specifically apache2-bin and apache2-data. It's my understanding that this will become a major problem in later problem sets. But for me, right now, it's a major problem because I can't get anything to install properly, such as a network manager so I can get my wifi working properly while booted into the Appliance. Once again, being new to Linux, I tried several potential solutions bit none of them worked -- not surprising really since none of the solutions were geared specifically for the Appliance. Either that, or my lack of mad Linux skills means I'm not understanding the problem, and therefore not understanding what the solution should be. Here's a few screenshots for info:
I think I understand the problem -- but probably don't. Once again, thank you in advance for any and all help.
