Hey everyone, I just received 14 free laptops from delta thanks to my dad ( they were being throw away. ) so I need some help in the field of: how to re install software like Ubuntu onto them.

First phase: five dell latitude d620's, there running windows 2000, all are passcode locked.

Second phase: four dell latitude d610's, same criteria as the d620's.

Third phase: some older latitude formats... Ill work on them later.

What do I need to do in order to wipe the current software and install Ubuntu?

To wipe and install, you just need Ubuntu. I don't know if those Dells support booting from a flash drive, but a CD will do. Just choose the install option and let it rip. Be aware, you will probably not be able to use the fingerprint scanner. If you want to keep windows, there are oftentimes ways to reset the passwords.

They are new enough that they should boot from a Flash Drive, which I recommend because it's a lot faster install. If you want to check what is on the laptop before you wipe them I can get you a password wiper.

I don't really need to check them, I've been on two and they need to be wiped... The personal info needs to be wiped.

The dells can handle fd's and cd/dvd's.
