Also, how do you get a different desktop? I don't care for unity. I liked the old menu with a list with titles, like internet, science, office, games. I had 10.10 set up, then went to Mint, and now I can't find the answers again.

One good thing, this time on installing Ubuntu told me which command would do what.

Upgrade, erase 11.04 and install 12.04. Erase everything including the drive with XP.
That made sense. I know which HD is which by MFG. SDA1 tells me nothing,


I did look up FX, and the answer was to let FX update normally. They didn't realize there was an ESR version.
Should be able to extract the file with something like this:
tar xfvj
I *think* rights, but I didn't have a to try it on.
